#CHROME Bringing voice recognition to the web

Bringing voice recognition to the web: Web apps, listen up. Today’s Chrome Stable release includes support for the Web Speech API (discussed last month), which developers can use to integrate speech recognition capabilities into their web apps. To see what this might look like, check out this demo on how to compose an email just using your voice.

In addition, today’s release also disables silent extension installs in Chrome for Windows. This keeps Chrome fast and safe by ensuring that you consent to every extension that’s installed on your computer.

Thanks to auto-update, you’ll get these enhancements as we roll out the release. And if you don’t have Chrome yet, you can give it a spin here.
