Google Voice SearchSo it seems people actually use Google Voice search instead of their keyboard to search. When and who? Google released a report showing all those details.

In short, 55% of teens between the age of 13-18 use it daily, whereas only 41% of adults use it daily. The top uses are asking for directions and calling someone, which makes sense (I use it mostly for directions). But many admit to using it while in the bathroom, with friends and watching TV.

The study was commissioned by Google and executed by Northstar Research, a global consulting firm. It examined the smartphone voice search habits of 1,400 Americans, 13 years of age and older (400 ages 13-17 and 1,000 adults ages 18+). Voice search is part of the Google app (available on iOS and Android) and is the best way to access Google for helpful assistance throughout your day.
