Google Search can help you teach animal sounds to your kids


Mark O'Beirne

If you're looking for a new way to teach kids what different animals sound like, Google is coming to the rescue with a new search feature.

Google Search has implemented a new feature to help you teach kids what sounds animals make.

When you search for “animal noises,” a field will appear at the top of your search results with an illustration of a variety of animals, their name, and an audio file that you can play to hear them in all their glory.

Alternatively, you can search for what does an animal say to get the sound clip for that particular animal. Ylvis mightn’t have had such a hit on its hands in 2013 if this had been implemented at the time. “What does the fox say? Let me Google that for you.”

We expect that Google will add more animals to this tool over time if it proves useful. It's unclear why a Bowhead Whale was one of the animals included at launch, but maybe it will entertain kids as they learn how to speak whale.
