A while ago Google added a small microphone to their search engine, allowing users to perform searches with voice. Then, for some reason, the microphone icon disappeared quietly, and no one seemed to notice or care.
Personally, I enjoyed searching by voice. Yes, it’s arguable as to whether or not voice is easier than typing when searching the web, but still, I was disappointed to see it go.
This evening, however, I was surprised to see the icon back in its place to the left of the search button.
Hopefully it’s back for good this time, though one should be wary of changes to Google done on or around April 1st.
