Google is known as one of the “hipper” companies, or one that tries to push a cool image.  For instance, look at their search page logo.  It is always changing.  They like to tinker with the small details to give an overall better package.  That philosophy is carrying over to their iPhone search app.  Venture beat discovered, *with the help of Google writing about it in their mobile blog* a secret settings tab in the Google search app.  How do you get there?  It is easy.   Get to the settings tab of the app then swipe to the bottom.  WHen you stop because you have reached the bottom, keep swiping, and swiping, and swipe just once more for good measure and another selection should appear named “bells & whistles”.  Clicking on this new selection brings you to another page with a bevy of more options including the ability to change the color of the app to anything you want, change the sounds to either chicken or monkey noises, see the waveform of your voice as your talk, and the option to open links with your voice!  Some pretty cool stuff.  Check out the gallery below for a few more pictures!
