Today, Google announced that it will roll out a new version of its its Google Search application for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The new version is notable in that it brings Siri and Google Now-like voice search functionality to the App Store app. The Verge is on hand at the announcement, and they note that you can “ask for the weather in a natural way and it will provide results.”

Search Engine Land is also on hand at the event, and they provide some more details. Notably, you can search maps info, theme songs, information about people, and conduct math calculations.
