Google has released "Moto X-like" spoken search extension for Chrome, which enables hands-free queries.



The free Google Voice Search Hotword extension has for spoken terms by adding an always-listening trigger, rather than requiring users to actually click the microphone button, the Verge reports.

According to the report, this will build on the existing support Google search.

The users can now say "OK, Google" to instruct the browser to search for anything they need, including measurements, weather, and directions.

The app is currently in beta, and can be downloaded from the Chrome Web Store.
