Google Doc's New Voice Typing Feature - ThinkWriteThinkWrite Google introduced a new feature for Google Doc’s that works exclusively in their Chrome browser and Chromebooks in the last month. The new voice typing feature is built directly into Google Docs on the Chrome browser now and puts the Chromebooks closer to what other devices like iPads and iPhones have had for the last few years with Siri voice dictation.

Once activated, you just need to click on the microphone icon and you can start voice dictation right away. If you are new to using voice to text there are some universal commands that most programs use.
