Google chrome gets chatty the release of a new beta of the web browser with a Web Speech API for developers. The new software will allow users to interact with Chrome just by using their voice. And Google says there's more to voice commands than just executing web searches.

Google says users will be able to dictate documents and control browser-based game characters through their voice alone.

Along with the new API, Google released a demo that lets users compose email just by talking into their computers. There's also a video of a Google engineer showing off what the new software can do, complete with a peek at all the new script.

In order to use the new feature, users will have to download Chrome 25 beta version.

Other beta features include: improvements in managing and securing your extensions, continued testing of search and the new tab page, better support for HTML5 time/data inputs, and plenty of new goodies for developers.

Google has yet to confirm when this version of the web browser leaves beta but the new development will definitely usher in a new era for browsers.
