Google Easter Egg: Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, RightGoogle announced yesterday on Google+ that Chrome, Google's popular browser, now supports the ability to say "Okay Google" to activate voice search by default from the Google search page.

You may need to go to your preferences, click on advanced settings and check off "Enable "Ok Google" to start a voice search."

Here is how it looks as an animated GIF:

Can't seem to get my microphone to do this! But as I need dictation more and more to reduce my hand pain, I hope I can activate this. I did need to change my advanced settings, but Chrome does not seem to recognise my voice! Edit: I discovered this is enabled on but not on The Cheek!
