A new search interface is coming to YouTube and is dedicated entirely to voice controls. The video service from Google is integrating a voice search mechanism much more powerful than in the past, which can be used to browse the app without making a tap.
The news is signaled by a small notification ” New ways to search with your voice! “.That appears next to the microphone icon the first time you tap on the search bar. Pressing on this icon you enter the voice control mode, with a white or dark interface that respects the theme applied. In this section there is only a big red button on the lower part, which pulsates to indicate the listening function: by pronouncing a voice command, on the upper part you can read the transcription of our words, while in the upper left there is a small “X” to close the voice search.
The commands we can give are many and even smarter than in the past. For example, you can say ” Show me my chronology ” or “Show me the trends ” to enter the appropriate sections, but the same reasoning also applies to other screens of the app.
At the moment the new interface for voice commands has been sighted by some users on the 13.50.52 version of YouTube for Android. It should be a server-side update, coming for all users in the world, even though we have not yet received it on our devices yet.
Furthermore, we do not know if the suggested voice commands are available in other languages. If you have already received this feature, please let us know in the comments and tell us if you can give commands in our language.
