- Voice search, what is it? In simplest terms, it's a form of speech recognition technology that allows searchers to use their voice to find things, rather than typing a question directly into a search engine like Google or Bing.

But more importantly, it's a behavior that is growing by leaps and bounds because our computers, phones, TVs all have voice-activated functionality, and people love using it.
