Washington: Internet giant Google has added hands-free voice search for all its users, in a new Chrome beta browser.

As per the new feature, a user doesn't need to type something which he/she wants to find, but just has to simply say "Ok Google" and start with the voice searching.

In order to enable this feature, a user will have to login to google.com, then click on the mic icon appearing in the search bar and then select, “Enable Ok Google.”

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 Google.com homepage and start with the voice searching.
