How can I integrate voice search?

Klevu's voice search integration is a 2-step process. But before you integrate, please note the following:
  1. Voice search is supported only in Google Chrome browser, version 26 and above and only works on HTTPS URLs.
  2. To get the best out of voice search, we advise enabling Klevu's Advanced NLP feature for your store. Enabling the Advanced NLP feature will ensure Klevu is able to understand and interpret long tail queries (i.e. anything beyond 5 words in a single query). If you are not sure whether you have this feature enabled or not, please contact us at support@klevu.com.

2. CSS Changes:

Please include the following CSS at your end,


.klevuVoiceSearchImage {
