Google has reportedly added in-built Voice Search to its Chrome beta browser.

The latest addition to Chrome beta for Windows, Mac and Linux would allow users to do voice searches by simply saying " Ok Google."

According to Tech Crunch, the new feature also lets users set Google Now reminders and alarms and trigger local searchers and get directions.

Until now, Chrome users had to use Google's Voice Search Hotword extension to enable the same functionality, but with the update, they could now simply open a new Chrome tab or be on the homepage and start with the voice searching.

The report said that the voice search would work in English as of now and Chrome OS support would follow soon.
