Google recently introduced a new feature that allows users to edit Google Docs with nothing but their voice. In recent years, many companies have added voice recognition technology to their platforms to facilitate hands-free control. Now Google Docs users can edit important documents without ever touching the keyboard.

Google originally introduced voice transcription back in September of 2015. However, now the company has updated the technology to allow users to edit Google Docs with their voice as well. To active the new feature, users simply select 'voice typing' from the 'tools' menu when using Google Docs in Chrome. After activating the feature, users can use verbal commands to do everything from copying and pasting new text to centering titles.

The new feature demonstrates how tech companies are integrating voice recognition into different services to allow for convenient, hands-free control.
