Yahoo! has launched a new service that lets mobile users search the web using voice commands. Yahoo!’s ‘oneSearch’ service is designed to allow users to conduct searches more quickly than entering text. For example, a search query like ‘Arsenal’ returns a rich set of results highlighting the latest results and schedules, breaking news, team profiles, images, and Web links.
With continued usage, Yahoo! said oneSearch with voice will adapt to the user’s intonations and accent, providing increasingly fine-tuned results as the product is used.
“Yahoo! oneSearch offers mobile consumers a compelling search experience, delivering answers and relevant results tailored to the unique attributes of the mobile experience,” said Mitch Lazar, managing director of Connected Life, Yahoo! Europe. “With today’s launch of Yahoo! oneSearch with voice, we are delivering the next generation of mobile search technology, making it easier and quicker for users to discover, initiate and input search queries.”
