Google Search for iOS gets update to recognize natural language
Google Search for iOS has received an update that allows the application to understand your conversational, natural language. Now, you can ask Google "What's the weather like?," receive the answer, and then follow it up with "How about this weekend?". The update also allows you to get Google Search ready for your inquiry by saying, "Ok Google", before asking your question. Sure, Android users have been able to do this for some time, but now these capabilities are available for the Google Search app on iOS.

Other new features available on the iOS version of Google Search 4.0 include the ability for Google Now to give you information related to your favorite topics, upcoming trips, and your favorite authors and blogs. With Google Now, you get the information you want, before you ask for it. And speaking of Google Now, the update adds cards for Cricket. If you're a fan of the sport, you can get results sent to you without asking for them. And with the update, Google Search and Google Now both load faster on your iOS device.

If you haven't downloaded or installed Google Search, it is a free app available for you from the Apple App Store.

Wish Apple would just kick off them off iOS once and for all.
