    Google has today announced that it has launched a new version of its iOS Search app, complete with enhanced voice search. Could this be Google’s attempt to take on Siri at her own game? Posting about the new update in the official Google Blog, Google said that the app will answer any question you ask using Google search results, via “fast and accurate voice recognition technology†that ensures that Google understands what you’re telling it. Google says that the use of Knowledge Graph in its search technology helps the app to answer questions about people and places in the real world, or to immediately fulfil a command such as asking it to play a trailer from the new James Bond film. Google will even speak the answers back at you, in Siri fashion, if the question can be answered quickly. Will be interesting to see how well this works!
