Google search can now teach you animal sounds

By Mashable.com

Using the Internet to teach your kids about the world can be hit or miss in terms of appropriate content, but a new feature in Google search is a robust tool straight out of Sesame Street.

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.
