Talk to your web application

Starting with version 25, Google Chrome will support the Web Speech API, as demonstrated at HTML5Rocks.

When this feature will be widely supported by the major browsers, I can think of many cool stuff you can do with it, e.g.:

  • Dictate an e-Mail in the Webmailer of your choice
  • Provide voice control for your web application
  • Google Now like features for web search engines

In my opinion, this is one big step towards the web as ultimate platform that can replace most native applications.
