Image from store Voice Actions for Chrome
Description from store Voice Actions for Chrome lets you control your Chrome/Chromium browser with your voice. It is similar to (but not affiliated with) voice actions and voice search apps available for Android and iOS, but it is the first such app available for Chrome. Features include: • Search the web with spoken queries. • Open web pages and Chrome apps just by saying their names. • Get maps or directions by saying the name of a location or destination. • Search for music by saying the name of an artist, album, or song. • No need to search through piles of tabs—just speak the title and Voice Actions will find it. • Activate hands-free—just say “OK Chrome”✴️ Permissions: • Needs access to your tabs for the “switch to ~” command • Needs access to your installed apps for the “launch ~” command - You must still enable Chrome app launching in options before the extension will search your apps • Needs access to your top sites for the “I'm feeling lucky” command **None of your browsing data is stored by the extension** Follow for updates: • facebook.com/ChromeVoiceActionstwitter.com/ChromeVoice Voice Actions for Chrome was created by Zachary Yaro and is supported in part through donations on ko-fi.com/ZMYaro and patreon.com/ZMYaro. More information is available at goo.gl/0YRdir. The source code is available at github.com/ZMYaro/chrome-voice-actions.

  • (2021-04-12) Dmitry Khodorovsky: Great app!
  • (2021-04-08) PaulAndrewAndersonOrg: Well, it just did not work at all. When clicking the mic, it says: An error occurred! I'm using Chromium browser of course, because the Google Chrome browser already has voice search function built-in so no need to add such a feature to it. So I must uninstall it for now. Hope you can get it working.
  • (2020-12-21) colnago: Отличная реализация, работает как часы. Полезное расширение. Теперь ищу расширение с помощью которого можно полностью набирать текст на любых сайтах, формах.

  • (2020-03-26) Viktors Tirelis: Не воспринимает русский, в чем может быть дело?
  • (2020-01-12) Some Guy Online: Has potential, but on for me it would not work unless I clicked the extension mic to see the message 'now speak.'
  • (2019-02-27) Rob Damiani: Works great! Does what it's designed to do and does it fast and accurately.
  • (2019-02-20) Narong Wongchotigulchai: GOOD WHAT iS HOT KEY?
  • (2019-02-05) BIGG John: Trying it for the first time today since the mic icon just stopped working on my default page on chrome. Beats having to open a new tab to search.
  • (2019-01-10) Robert: Nice interface. Only English!?
  • (2018-12-18) Paramount Channel: Chroma masaüstü ile kullanıyorum gerçekten çok kullanışlı harika. aramaları hızlı yapıyor söylediklerimi rahat anlıyor öneririm
  • (2018-12-12) Lucian Andries: Works great!! I recommend! Two little requests please????? - Please add Dictation! So we can "fill" text fields with our voice. On every text field and every website! - Voice Activation command! Please!!!!!!! :((((( Great job so far!
  • (2018-11-19) Sergey M: То что искал, одним словом. Прокачка от гугла. Спасибо разработчикам!
  • (2018-03-19) Akseli Palén: No practical value without voice activation. Given that voice control in theory should free you from pressing buttons and allow you to move away from the machine, this extension does not provide that freedom: you still need to sit tight and press buttons for each voice command. Sad, so sad.
  • (2018-03-17) Anastasia Dmitrievna: замечательно! то что искал
  • (2018-02-28) Denis Surkov: Why is it so slow? I press Voice actions and it takes 4 second just to activate the input. Why?
  • (2018-02-19) RAGHURAM RAJU BACHU: This is the best app that has been made. I actually never comment on the apps I use but such a beautiful work needs to be definitely appreciated. Thanks for making such awesome app and if possible in future add a feature like ok goole kind of voice activation, this would take it to the next level. Keep continuing this great work!!!
  • (2018-01-03) Not Required: Very useful
  • (2017-11-01) Russell Olson: Works really well but I am like another reviewer, it needs the option to have it listen in the background

  • (2017-05-04) God Is Lov!: This is the best extension ever! You don't know how long I have been trying to find this because I had 2 years ago and lost it. And now I have finally got it back.
  • (2016-11-22) he2000: very good
  • (2016-11-14) Lisa Gonzalez: So far, it's been excellent!! What I would want is to be able to automatically play as requested when I say "Play x song by x artist." Also, it'd be great to voice-activate the button, instead of clicking it first.
  • (2016-10-22) Daria S: Works great, and fast. Perfect!!!
  • (2016-10-11) Ravish Chawla: The BEST chrome app. It works really well.
  • (2016-10-08) Carolyn Oliveira: I have such bad wrists from typing I need to be able to browse with my voice alone, without having to click anything to activate the mic. As it is, this one won't help me
  • (2016-09-23) Paul Motey: Use it daily - so don't fix what's not broke O.K.
  • (2016-09-16) Josef H.: It's a great extension, thank you

    I have a question: does this extension also work with the Edge browser? and if not, could you also adapt them to this browser?
  • (2021-04-12, v:4.6.1) Dmitry Khodorovsky: Google talk back feature
    Hello and thank you for a great extension! Could you please add Google talk back feature so Google will talk back after a voice query such as 'what temperature is in NYC' like in the original version when we type these sorts of queries?

  • (2020-11-09, v:4.6) Brycson Batchelder: brycson
  • (2020-09-07, v:4.6) M D: 3 suggestions: Wikipedia - url's - languages
    It's already a 5-star-extension but still I have some suggestions to make it even better: 1) Wikipedia "something" = to search Wikipedia for that term 2) an options to save long url's as one word eg. save the link 'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ' as 'my music'. So when I say "go to 'my music' " it goes that url. 3) maybe this one is the hardest but support for other languages? Arabic, Russian ...etc
  • (2020-03-25, v:4.6) M D: Redirect Notice
    chrome shows me "Redirect Notice" everytime I want to go to a website except for google and youtube, even if I allow "Pop-ups and redirects" from the settings, it still shows me the message before every website
  • (2018-12-12, v:4.5) SO WHAT'S THE POINT?
    The programming, workability, cleanliness and speed of this app are 2nd to NONE. But, if I have to use my hands, then the whole reason, the ENTIRE PURPOSE intended (for this app and myself) is just masterbation (no pun intended) Privacy concerns?????? Come on. Cortana, SIRI and 1000 others all activate by voice. Get it together, plug in 'activate by voice' and slap a price tag on it. I'd pay for that in a second.
