A new tool that makes it easier to search medical documents using Google’s search engine is set to go live in early December, the company announced.
The new search engine allows users to use the same Google Chrome browser to search for specific words in medical documents, and then a third-party tool will be installed to read them out loud.
The feature is already available in some Android and iOS apps, but Google said it wants to make it available to the web for the first time.
The search engine could be used to find specific words or phrases in a document, or to get additional information about a topic, such as whether someone is in hospital, when they got there, or how they were treated.
Google also plans to let users search for a word or phrase using the search engine without having to visit the web page, and they can then click on the word or term and see it on the site.
“We’re going to do something really cool with it,” Google chief operating officer Craig Barratt said.
“I mean, we’re not just going to give you a dictionary, we want you to understand what you’re looking at.”
Google is already planning to launch the new search feature to other web services such as Microsoft Bing, Apple’s Safari, and Amazon’s Alexa.
Google also announced a new search option to its Gmail app, which allows users of Gmail to search through documents they’ve sent and received.
The company is also planning to release a new version of Google Docs, its document editing application.
Google is also working on a new product to streamline its online store.
The company also has plans to develop a new app to help people with chronic conditions access medical information, and to develop new products that can be used with the search tool.
Google said it is launching the new Google Doc to help improve search results for patients who can’t access the web.
“The medical information that patients need is often hidden in the depths of the web,” Barratt wrote.
“In this new environment, the power of the search results to find them is huge.”
