Google Drive Could Be Receiving A New Feature, Voice To Text Dictation(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Google Drive, previously known as Google Docs, is getting voice to text dictation on its desktop version that will allow users to dictate notes to online documents instead of typing them out, according to Marques Brownlee.

Brownlee wrote on Google + that this feature will be making its way to the system by posting, “You saw it here first-Google Docs is getting Voice typing,” followed by four screenshots showing the feature.

Voice to text speech could very well be making its way to Google Drive seeing as how Google recently launched its voice-assist feature on its Chrome beta version at the end of February.

According to NDTV Gadgets, the voice feature is activate by saying “OK Google” then followed by a question or search command.

No further information regarding the voice feature on Google Drive has been released.
