Now when you search for “animal noises,” a field appears at the top of your search results that shows illustrations of animals, their names and a sample of what they sound like.
Alternatively, you can also search for something like, “What does the dog say,” to bring up a specific animal sound result.
Included in the list of 19 animal sounds are a zebra, ape, cat, lion, moose, owl, pig, cow, duck, elephant, horse, raccoon, bowhead whale, humpback whale, wolf, rooster, sheep, tiger and a turkey.
The carousel of animal noises are reminiscent of the classic See N Say toy that has for decades helped many children learn the sounds of animals.
Google didn’t make a big announcement connected to the feature, but a post on its Google Australia blog a few weeks ago offered most of the details.
