Google bringing voice search to iPhone

Google is planning to release an iPhone application that allows users to search by voice instead of using the keyboard. According to the New York Times, the application may be available as soon as today, although it’s currently unclear whether the voice searching feature will be added to the company’s existing Google Mobile App or whether it will arrive in the form of a standalone application. Results, which may be displayed as quickly as seconds after the query, will at times also include local information, leveraging the iPhone’s location services. The service will be free to customers when it is released.

Just checked on Googl Mobile’s site.  It indeed says that it’ll be an App and actually says it’s available now.  Searching further in the FAQ shows how to turn it on/off, how to use, etc.  Alas, downloading the App resulted in nothing more than the old Google App.  I guess they jumped the gun.
