How to enable experimental “OK Google” voice recognition on your Chromebook

on November 22, 2013


Google(s goog) voice search combined with Google Now is quietly becoming a killer feature on both Android and, more recently, iOS devices. It’s a safe bet that it will be just as important on Chrome: Google’s platform to transform traditional computing with the web as your desktop and the cloud replacing local storage. If you have a Chromebook or Chromebox, you can get an early glimpse of how saying “OK Google” to your computer will aid in that transition.

Google evangelist François Beaufort noted on his Google+ page that people running the developer channel of Chrome OS can enable the “OK Google” function. But be forewarned, it’s pretty limited for now. To activate the feature, type chrome://flags in the browser address bar of your Chrome OS device running the developer channel. Next, look for the enable-app-launcher-start-page flag and choose to enable it. Restart Chrome OS and you’re all set.
