Voice search coming to Chrome for iOS in 'coming days'
A voice search option is being added to the iOS version of <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Chrome</a> in "the coming days," according to Google. Users will just have to tap a microphone icon and ask the same sort of queries Google supports in Android and the iOS Google Search app. The change should in fact reduce the need to use Search, although that app is still iOS' gateway to Now and various other Google services.<br />
<br />
The same Chrome update will implement better cache use, improving page reloading times. It will also enable the option for third-party apps to open links in Chrome, and then return to the original app once a person is finished.<br />
<br />
Google is working on making access to voice search more universal. At last week's Google I/O conference the company revealed that voice is even coming to, although not before the Chrome iOS update is likely to reach the App Store.

I downloaded Google Chrome for my iPad 1 quite some time ago. It already has Voice Search. It's at the far right of the URL address line. A little microphone icon to the right of a Star icon and to the left of the Preferences icon. The Voice Search does work quite well.

Anyone else? Did Google put my version on the App store by mistake. And I happened to download it before they replaced it with a non-voice search version?
