Thanks Google…

Wonderfully embarrassing moment today thanks to Google Search speech recognition.

I had the in-laws over, playing with my daughter. I hooked up my Nexus 4 to the TV so I could show little Dotty pictures of animals. She is getting good at recognising them and while she can’t say the words, she often can point out the cuddly toy or puzzle piece that matches.

Anyway, I had been speaking to Google search, saying “Pictures of Cats” etc. However when it came to “Pictures of Giraffes” it recognised it as “Pictures of Your Ass”. Queue hilarious laughter from everyone. Thankfully it realised what I meant and searched for giraffes but there was a scary moment where I was expecting a screen full of bums.

Thank goodness Google is better at reading minds than understanding my accent!
