You know that nifty little feature on the Nexus 5 and other Android handsets that let's you voice summon Ok Google from any screen? Well, according to Google's François Beaufort, you'll soon be able to do just that on your Chromebook as well.

On a Google+ post, Beaufort shows off the feature in a few stills and says that OK Google voice summoning is still only available in the Dev Channel, but once Google works out the kinks, it will most likely migrate to beta and onto all of our machines.

If you want to test out this new feature now (along with other new goodies when they become available), TalkAndroid has a pretty good step-by-step on how to switch over to the dev channel. Of course, if you need any help finding that perfect Chromebook—look no further. [Google via PC World]

DISCUSSION

I hate that it takes four syllables to initiate a quick search. I wish you could customize the phrase to something else, like "Yo Google" or "Quick search" or something like that. "OK Google" is also a bit awkward to say due to the K and G being next to each other.
