Android's voice search functionality is anticipated
to broaden its capabilities to offer an "eyes-free" interface, aimed at users who are driving. According to Tech Radar, the initiative is codenamed KITT and allows for accessing the "OK Google" voice search feature from anywhere within the phone. If Google cannot provide the information in a way that does not require viewing the screen, the information is saved until it can be safely viewed. More information regarding this upcoming feature will likely surface at Google's I/O conference.
