So gizmodo has a video up of Google Voice Search vs Siri both on iOS

Neither is perfect so its good to have options. Its nice now that google often returns an answer instead of just a google search.

However i've been playing with this on an iPhone 4 & iPhone 5 but neither one of them talk back like in the video. Ive scoured through all the settings, logged in etc, and searched the web.

Does your google voice search talk back on iOS? 
I wonder if maybe the gizmodo video was a beta version, and the feature was removed.

On Android phones the system language needs to be set to US english for talk-back (or at least it did to begin with when Google Now came out, may have since changed). Do you have an option to set the default system language to that in iOS to try that?

- The English US setting is in the apps itself.
- Also verify that the 'talk back' is enabled. When at the 'microphone' screen, click on the info icon at the bottom left corner, it has the toggle.
