Google Adds Voice Recognition To Chrome

Google launched Chrome 25 beta last month, which included support for voice commands via the Web Speech API. Now, voice recognition has come to the stable release.

Developers can use the API to to integrate speech recognition capabilities into their web apps, so Chrome users can benefit from the feature.

Google has a demo here, if you want to see how it works.

The release also disables silent extension installs in Chrome for Windows.

“This keeps Chrome fast and safe by ensuring that you consent to every extension that’s installed on your computer,” says Google software engineer Glen Shires.

The new features will come with the auto-update as the release is rolled out.
