Google search: update brings kin voice search

The advertised idea will make your contacts' voice search more personal, but is that all? On its official Google+ page, Big G announced the distribution of an update that lets you find and call a contact using not their name, but their kinship with the person.

Soon, the Google search application voice search will understand phrases like Call mom (call my mom). And those who do not yet have safe contact with kinship can do so through simple steps. The closest relatives will be the first to count on the function (mother, father, brother, sister, uncle, grandmother, grandmother, nephew, niece).

As always, the update will arrive first in English. And at this point I wonder: wouldn't this be an indirect way of finding out what our kinship is with our contacts? Google could, as it always does, commercially use the data it collects, and there is no doubt that you will start receiving specific advertising on Mother's Day, Children's Day, Father's Day, etc.

What did you think of the news? Do you think there's something behind the update?
