Similar to other Google iOS apps, Google+ Local now features voice search. This shouldn’t be confused with Apple’s virtual assistant, Siri. While it won’t set calendar alerts or book reservations for you, it’s pretty fast and does a good job of understanding you when you’d prefer not to type.
The update is available for download today; Android already has this functionality. Google+ Local makes it easier for people to find, rate, and share your business. And now your customers can do so while on the go.
