You can now talk into Google Maps to look for places and get directions. "Using voice search can make it easier to find hard-to-spell places or simply get directions without typing. Or if you're interested in exploring the world through the Earth layer (using the plugin), you can just say where you want to go and fly over to that location directly within your browser!," explained Jed Burgess, Software Engineer.

If you didn't already know, you can also use voice commands on Google.com, your Android device or on the Google app for your iPhone."
