Here is a brand new demo with improved Google voice searches in the last 12 months (35 queries shown). You can now check business hours, get nutritional facts, ask for traffic, create reminders or even go through your albums to find those precious photos of your cat!

Combined with Google Now, the Knowledge Graph and better natural language understanding, search is becoming smarter, conversational and more useful with every update. As Google integrates more products such as Gmail, Calendar and Google+, you can see how things are starting to come together.

You can try these on Android or iOS, though keep in mind some of these commands do not work on iOS yet.

For other examples of voice commands on Android, you can watch my previous videos from last year:

How do I enable hotword detection even when I'm not in Google Now? A: Unless you have a Moto X, utter! can do this. You can customize your own hotword (mine was simply 'Google'), or say 'Okay Google' to trigger a Google voice search anywhere on your phone.

Those commands don't work on my device! A: If you have problems hearing voice answers (but you see answer cards), make sure to check your language settings within the app and ensure it matches your system language. In app settings, next to voice answers, enable "always speak". Also check your media volume (different from ringtone/notifications). If you don't see answer cards and get ordinary results instead, check whether the Knowledge Graph is available in your language and local Google domain. If it's not, go to Settings and check the box to search using google.com by default.
