Google Releases Chrome 25 Beta
Introduces web speech API for developers.
Google has released a new beta for its Chrome browser, which introduces a web speech API for developers.
The update will allow users to interact with Chrome by solely utilizing their voice, with Google stressing that there are more possibilities pertaining to voice commands than simply conducting web searches.
The search engine giant believes users can control documents and browser-based game characters through their voice. As well as the new API, Google released a demo that enables users to compose emails by talking into their systems through voice recognition devices.
Other features implemented by the beta includes improvements in managing and securing a user's extensions, improved support for HTML5 time/data inputs, among a batch of additions for developers.
