    Google has announced today that iOS device users will soon be getting some new features for Google Search on their iPhones, iPads and iPod touches. Most significant of these is the ability to ask Search a question out loud and have the answer spoken back to you as well. Basically, it works exactly like Siri! The app uses Google’s Knowledge Graph to provide exactly the information you want, such as what time a flight is leaving, what is the weather like, and so on. You can also ask it to do things for you, such as show you a YouTube video. The app has already been updated on the latest version of Android, with the iOS update coming to the App Store “within the next couple of days,†The Verge reports Google as saying. It has been submitted to Apple for its approval, so it’s just a question of when Apple allows it onto the App Store.
