Siri alternative - Google Search adds voice

Google has updated it's Google Search app to include voice instructions.  I downloaded the app and clicked on the mic icon.  I preceded to say "Movie's playing"  and the app found local list of movie playing at my local theater must have location activated).  Not all searches result in the voice talking.  It sometimes just shows the Google search results without a word spoken.  Also the recognition is not perfect.  I said these three words "Engadget", "Gizmodo" and "Cnet".  The first two results were correct but Cnet searched for seen it.  The app works well but not all searches end up with the results I wanted.  This can also can be said for Siri as well so nothing is perfect.
