There's so much to love about Google's (NASDAQ:GOOGL) new voice-activated search, especially on a Mac. The system quite literally scans a worldwide database as you speak, refining results just as fast as when you type. A remarkable achievement, says Tim Beyers of Motley Fool Rule Breakers and Motley Fool Supernova. He ranks Google as one of his favorite stock tips right now.
Why remarkable? Because Google is making voice-activated services as intelligent as they are interactive, an area where Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has enjoyed limited success. (Siri may be perfectly interactive, but she's comparatively unintelligent.)
And yet Google still has plenty of upgrade work to do. The killer app for voice is dictation, and you can't dictate text into a Google document on a Mac in the same way you can on an iPad, iPhone, or Android device. Fix that problem, Tim says, and the search king could disrupt both Microsoft and Nuance while further legitimizing the market for cloud-based productivity software.
