We know some parents are loads of fun and would do anything to teach their kids some lessons but not very many parents would cherish the thought of going down on all fours, twisting their lips into varying shapes and uttering sounds that are the farthest thing from human. For the most part, even at your most willing, your ability to convey these animal sounds may be quite lacking and your child may be more interested in laughing than actually taking the lesson seriously.
Google is set to help you out of that dilemma in a bit and all it requires is a simple search. A simple search that will open up your child to a world of animal sounds beyond even their present environment. Your child may never get to see a moose anytime soon, but if they eventually do, they can relish the fact that they are not ignorant of the sound one makes, or whatever.
Google search introduces this new feature straight out of sesame street which produces a field at the top of your search results when you search for “animal noises”. The field which appears shows illustrations of animals, their names and samples of what they sound like. For specific results, you can search instead for something like “What does the dog say” and the field containing the sound specific to a dog will provided.
Currently, there are 19 animal sounds included in the tool which are; zebra, ape, cat, lion, moose, owl, pig, cow, duck, elephant, horse, raccoon, bow-head whale, humpback whale, wolf, rooster, sheep, tiger and a turkey. Google had announced the roll-out of the new feature on its Google Australia blog a few week ago and now it’s here for your child’s learning pleasure. If nothing else, this goes to show how the internet is changing even learning, have fun with your toddler as they learn .
