Google has released a new extension for Chrome that lets users query Google hands-free. The 'Google Voice Search Hotword (Beta)' extension lets you simply say 'Ok Google’ and start speaking your search.

Now you can talk to Google when you’re using Chrome. Hands-free. No typing. Simply say “Ok Google” and then ask your question. Note: this extension sends your question to Google only when it hears the phrase “Ok Google.”

How to get started
1) Download the extension.
2) Click “agree” to give your permission to use your microphone.
3) Visit Google.com on Chrome and give it a try. Just say “Ok Google” and then ask your question.

Check out how the extension works in the video below or hit the link to download.
