You’re not crazy if you talk to yourself, you’re only crazy if you answer.
Google has quietly released the first version of their Conversational Search tool, in the latest version of Google Chrome. It’s been referred to as the “Star Trek Computer” and it’s easy to see it as a game changer.
I made this short demo video, so you can see how it works.
Danny Sullivan, at Search Engine Land, was also impressed:
Conversational search has natural language, semantic search and more built into it, and while it’s far from perfect, this really is one of those significant changes that makes even a “seen it all” person like me sit up and take notice.
All you need to try it yourself is the latest version of Google Chrome and a working microphone. Have fun!
