According to recent changes, the familiar microphone icon on the Google search bar may soon be a thing of the past.
On some smartphones, the old "Voice Search"Google has changed to the Assistant logo. The hint also became different: instead of “Say Ok, Google”, the application shows “Ask your assistant”. The same familiar interface as before opens, but the search is now performed by the assistant, and the result is displayed on a separate panel.
Google Voice Search has been around for years andworks in more languages than assistant. However, Google wants to combine all the functions in the Assistant and remove unnecessary applications. The changes so far work only on some devices, but will gradually appear in all users.
