Google Rolls Out Recognition Software For Voice Search

Search giant Google has added voice recognition capabilities to its Google Voice Search feature on Android OS.

The feature builds on its voice search feature, allowing users to "train" the software to recognise their voice commands, Google said.

“If you opt into personalised recognition, we begin to associate the recordings of the words that you ask us to recognise with your Google account,” Google explained.

In a blog post, Google explained that the feature will be able to recognise the voice of a particular user over time and provide more accurate search results.

“Google takes your privacy seriously, so you can enable or disable personalised recognition at any time through the Google voice recognition settings on your phone. ” the company added.

People wishing to completely remove the voice data recorded by Google can do so by visiting the Speech section on the Google dashboard.
