Women Practicing Words Table Google Logo

Several years ago, Google Search added a search feature to help you pronounce words. Google Search back in 2019 added to that feature a way to practice your pronunciation directly in the search results.

Now there is a "practice" button that will turn on your device's microphone and let Google Search hear you as you practice saying the word. Then Google will tell you if you pronounced the word well or not.

Here is a GIF of it in action, but you can probably try it yourself on mobile or desktop search:

I think this is cool and can come in handy for many people and kids.
