Microsoft's Shake to Search Torque App Comes to Android

Microsoft has recently started a positive move towards releasing their software on other mobile platforms, including the arrival of Torque Voice Search on Android Wear devices earlier in the year.

Now, the app is available to all Android users, giving them a choice of Voice Searching options. The element which sets Torque apart is the ability to set it up so a shake of your phone tasks the phone with listening to what you have to say. That's something which started out as a handy way to make it work with Android Wear (just shake your wrist) and makes the transition to mobile.

Otherwise, Torque listens to your commands and responds quite like Google Now and Siri, though currently there's no voice feedback which is being considered for a future update. You can set reminders, directions on a map or do basic internet searches, all powered by Bing. Naturally.

Get it from the app store now.
