The Google Search app on iOS has had voice input as an option for a while now, but it has only been used to initiate Google searches, which isn't surprising given the name of the app. But, according to Scott Huffman, the Engineering Director of Mobile at Google, there is a new update that has been submitted to Apple for approval which will add support for Q&A style queries to the app. This will be adding a lot more support for search answers that would be found on a Google Now card. So, you can ask "When is my flight?" or "What was the score of the Mets game last night?" and the app will return the correct answer.
Google is hoping that the update is approved within the next couple weeks, at which point it will be released into the App Store. Of course, we'll keep an eye out so you don't have to.
*Update* According to Amit Singh, VP of Enterprise, the update should be in the App Store "in a couple days".
