And the reason is its user-friendly attribute to make search easy and faster. The Google is exploring each and every aspect followed by humans for the search. In order to do that, it has implemented different regional languages, help-text, related search, voice search etc.

Among all of these, Google voice search will be the fastest growing technique that will be used to search in the year 2018. iOS- Siri, Google Assistant, Google Home, Amazon Echo, Cortana are some of the best examples of it. These all device works on Natural Language Processing algorithms which mean to search something you do not have to give any type of computer language command. It just accepts your Natural language (English) as a command and responds to it in the same language.
