OK Google: Give Me A Chrome Extension

Google announced a new Chrome extension that enables the "hotword" for searching Google without hands from your desktop - "OK Google."

Yes, you can activate a Google search by saying "OK Google." But only if you first navigate to google.com. Then, you can use the hotword.

Of course, it is faster to not navigate to google.com and just type your query in the Chrome omni search box. But I guess if your hands are messy, and if you are on Google.com already, saying OK Google is nice.

Here is Google's post:

so, if this application know words like 'google, this site, top 9, increase rank for 100%, for another 100%, etc' - it can be really useful. Otherwise it just blackhat spam, to increase google ranking in searchers brain. But this spam not will work anymore.

Hey, it's just one extra advancement in technology if you ask me. I wonder how fast it is cause the article is right -- you probably can type your query faster than it can understand you. But we'll see, I guess. I wonder if it can delete your query verbally, too, in case it doesn't understand you right the first time?

I don't think this is too revolutionary. It's an extension of mobile.

about google blackhat methods and unnatural spammy applications and toolbars (which also steal your data and bind your computer to unique hardware id, store and track it with every request on google servers). Only one reason for this application developement to get more searches (and private data) for profit. So it just a google blackhat spam.

Developments are everywhere and this is not something really big for the industry. It could be a good start but with all the resources that Google or any other search engine has, it will still be possible to work with more of these.
