For years and years now, Google has been suggesting that Google Search Console way add ways to see your query data filtered by voice search. So you can see how people search using voice versus other inputs. John Mueller from Google said he personally feels there are more important things to add to Search Console over this specific request.
John Mueller said on Twitter “If it were my decision, I’d rather the team focus on other things first. There’s always a ton to be done!”
Makes sense – there are probably other features Google is working on that might have a larger benefit or impact for SEOs and webmasters.
Here is where he said this:
People also swipe differently — TBH, I don’t think that’s very useful information, if it’s essentially just a matter of entering the keywords in a different way. If it were my decision, I’d rather the team focus on other things first. There’s always a ton to be done!

Voice search query data is not a new request like we said before, in fact, I see it come up all the time. I suspect we will get a filter at some point, the question is how soon?
