Significance of Voice Search in the New Age HRMS Mobile App

When we talk of voice search, virtual assistants like Siri and Alexa come to mind. However, thanks to advanced mobile app technology, voice search is not just something restricted to virtual assistants alone, but has found its pride of place in the new generation of mobile apps. Yes, today, you have mobile apps that have taken the Search functionality to an all new level with the voice search feature. What’s more, it has redefined the way people interact with the apps and their mobile devices at large!
While many of us tend to believe that voice search functionality is something that benefits users of ecommerce apps and online stores only, the fact is that most apps today have some kind of search functionality which can be made to support voice commands for search. The Digital HRMS mobile app is an example of a HR app that supports advanced voice search functionality. The app that is available for Android as well as iOS users, allows you to navigate quickly through simple voice commands.

There are many technologies like Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning that work behind the scenes to make voice search a reality. However, we’ll save the “how it works” to another day and for now focus on how the introduction of voice search can make a difference and add to the user experience of the mobile apps we have today. So, let’s get started…

Why the Need for Voice Search Functionality

To begin with, voice search functionality eliminates the need for intricate menus and complex navigation. Taking the example of the Digital HRMS mobile app, if a user wants to apply for leave, the traditional way would be to follow the app navigation, whereby the user needs to be aware of the exact path to the ‘Apply Leave’ screen. However, with voice search functionality enabled, this becomes a lot more simplified. All that the user needs to do is speak “Apply Leave” and he/she is directed to the said screen. It’s easy, quick and effective.

The Digital HRMS mobile app has a voice search feature button at the bottom of the Home screen to enable Voice Search in one click alone. Also, clicking on the ‘i’ icon at the top right corner of the screen displays the list of Voice Commands available for quick reference.


So, the speed is one of the significant factors driving the popularity of voice search feature in mobile apps today. Also, the convenience of the user is another important factor. What’s more, voice search functionality can be used the very moment the user has installed the app, as it does not require any learning curve or extensive knowledge about the tabs and screens of the app. Just the knowledge of a set of basic voice commands can help the user perform quick actions on the app.

Another significant impact of Voice Search functionality is on the user engagement on the app. As search becomes easier, users are more eager to explore the app and get amazed by the results. The Digital HRMS mobile app has an array of voice commands that make it extremely easy to interact with the app and also find what you’re looking for in just a few clicks.
