Internet giant Google has released a new feature that will enable parents to teach children about different noises that animals make. A quick search for “animal noises” on Google returns illustrations of animals, their names and a sample of what sound do they make, Mashable tech website reported. Alternatively, you can also search for something like, “What does the dog say”, to bring up a specific animal sound result, the report added.

Google has included 19 animal sounds in its list, including zebra, ape, cat, lion, moose, owl, pig, cow, duck, elephant, horse, raccoon, bowhead whale, humpback whale, wolf, rooster, sheep, tiger and a turkey.However the selection of animals is limited.

Last year in November, the search giant had also improved its search engine algorithm that would enable users to make complex voice search queries.

So for example if  you search for “What are the ingredients for a screwdriver?” it is smart enough to understand that the user meant to ask about cocktail and not the tool. Other complex  questions include “Who are the tallest Mavericks players?” or “What are the largest cities in Texas?” Google can now understand words such as “tallest,” and “largest.”
