Don’t want to shout “OK, Google” every time you want to search your Android phone for something? In that case you can use the all new shake for search feature with the new Torque Voice Search app for Android. Torque Voice Search has been released by Microsoft for Android devices and it lets you initiate a voice search with just a shake of your Android device. However, the search engine used for initiating the voice search is Microsoft’s own “Bing” search engine which is not as popular as Google.
Microsoft previously released the Torque Voice Search app for all Android smartwatches where you only had to flick your wrist to initiate the voice search. Now, Microsoft has decided to give all the Android users a taste of how their search engine works by releasing the Torque Voice Search app for all Android devices. Torque Voice Search is only supported on Android version 4.3 or higher, if you have an Android device running any older version of the OS then unfortunately it won’t work.
