    Google added voice recognition technology to the search software it distributes through Apple for its iPhone. They are working on so many things, its amazing. At any given point google can announce the next think and press is all over it.

    Gummi Hafsteinsson, Google Mobile Applications product manager, offered a demo of the application at Google's headquarters in Mountain View, Calif. Hafsteinsson simply opened the Google Search application on his phone, held the phone up to his ear, and spoke. Best way to show a demo is to let people play with it.

    The application combines voice-recognition technology with Google's search index and the iPhone's ability to track a user's location to offer results keyed to his or her whereabouts.

    "This is a completely open-ended query stream, so you can say anything," Hafsteinsson says. "Anything you might want to type into, you can say to this applciation."

    The move helps plug a gaping hole in the iPhone's capabilities--voice recognition--while pitting Google (nasdaq: GOOG - news - people ) against Microsoft (nasdaq: MSFT - news - people ), whose Tellme unit has long sought to bridge the gap between phones and the Web with voice recognition-enabled applications.
