Now, Search users can use voice commands to search, text and many. Indeed, this is the most significant feature added in the update. Just say ‘OK Google’ and speak out your voice commands to get your work done, like sending a message, conducting a call, and so on.

The modernized version of Search app is now compatible with the GEL (Google Experience Launcher). Just sideload the GoogleHome.apk after you update the app and boom to add the Google Experience Launcher to any of the Android devices powered by 4.1 or higher firmware.

The update also brings new website update cards which shows up the recent posts from handpicked sources and ‘What to Watch’ card displays more recommendations for television shows and movies.
