No, Google Now, I said ‘potato salad’

Google issued a tiny, but significant, update for its Google Now voice-based smart assistant that will let users correct the search engine when it doesn’t correctly understand what they ask for. The new correction hot phrase starts with “No, I said,” which has to be followed by the word or words Google Now has misunderstood. For example, if you’re using Google Now to check the progress on that popular potato salad project on Kickstarter, or on any of the knock-offs projects that followed it, and Google Now for some reason doesn’t understand what you meant to search for, you can quickly correct it by saying “No, I said potato salad.” More →
