The people behind Google Now's voice recognition software are breaking down the different ways that humans ask about the weather.

You can ask Google Now what the weather is like, and it will tell you. It will also tell you if you need an umbrella today or not.

Google Now and its voice search functionality seem like a push toward conversational technology.

As of this moment, voice commands are mostly good for using your GPS without having to look at your smartphone. Google's hoping that you'll stop treating your tech like a robot if it stops acting like one.

Someone could accidentally discover that Google Now will tell them whether or not they need a jacket, and that moment would feel really cool.

If Google Now's voice recognition team has their way, you won't give commands to your smartphone anymore. You'll talk to it.
