Search The Web With Your Voice Using Android's Search Button

No one enjoys typing on tiny phone keyboards, which is why Android's Voice Search app is so great. Luckily, there's a shortcut for Voice Search built right into your phone's hardware buttons.You probably already know how cool Android's Voice Search feature is — with just the tap of a button you can search the internet without every laying a finger on your phone's keyboard. But, it's not even necessary to waste valuable home screen space with the Voice Search icon. Just press and hold down on your phone's search button, and it'll invoke Voice Search, no matter what app you're in. It may feel silly at first, but with a shortcut this easy, there's no reason not to use it when you don't feel like typing. Check out the video above to see it in action.


    I don't know... The voice search on Android, although it's a great concept, has never worked very well for me and always left me spending more time trying to correct it than it took just to type that word in. Maybe it doesn't like Australian accents... or maybe I should actually spend more time on it...
