Google TV voice-control feature shown off in new video

updated 05:26 pm EDT, Sun October 14, 2012

Users can search, control content by voice

Google recently published a promotional video showing off voice-control and other unannounced features for Google TV. The search giant removed the video shortly after it was posted, but not before a number of observers were able to grab screen captures confirming that vocal commands will be featured in Google TV at some point in the near future. When Google's fledgling television platform sees an update, it will also feature user interface changes allowing for easier content browsing and discovery.

Users will, according to The Next Web be able to use voice input to tell their devices to search for content by title, genre, and channel, among other options. Users will also be able to bring up other Google apps, such as Maps, by calling out the name of the app.

The update will also bring a mini-guide, allowing users to plan what they will watch next without having to leave their current program.
