Google is set to make a new application available to the iPhone that will allow users to conduct searches by speaking their queries into the handset rather than typing them in. Questions asked are converted into digital files and sent to Google's servers for processing. Once processed, the text is sent to Google's regular search servers and the search results are then returned to the iPhone. It will also use GPS information to return results that are relevant to the user's location. Google competitors Microsoft and Yahoo already offer similar services via their TellMe and oneSearch applications. The application will be available through the iPhone Apps Store.
