World’s largest search engine, Google has apparently started to roll out the voice to text dictation typing feature on the Google Drive, which was formerly known as Google Docs. The feature is likely to be available on PC Desktops, as of now.
According to a post by Marques Brownlee on Google+, Google has started rolling out the dictation feature on Google Drive. Brownlee wrote, “You saw it here first – Google Docs is getting Voice typing,” in his post. He showed four purported screenshots of the voice button, within the Google Drive menu.
However, there are no further details given, as to when the voice-to-text dictation service will be available to all users. It is largely speculated that the feature will be a gradual rollout, once its officially announced like all other updates from Google.
There is no official announcement about the update on the Google Drive, yet.
The voice-assist feature is likely to be the same as seen on different Google services and also on the Android version of the Google Drive.It is to be noted that last week, Google opened the voice-assisted typing feature on its Chrome Beta version, for the purpose of search.
The voice-search feature in Chrome Beta will let users activate search via the ‘OK Google’ voice command. The users can also use their voice to set timers or create reminders.
