Control your Android Phone with Voice Actions

by Saad Irfan

The Voice Actions Feature for Android is introduced recently by Google at a Special Android Event. As the name suggests, this feature enables the user to control the phone via voice.

It will enable you to control your Android phone using your voice to make a call, send messages, browsing, listen to music, send email, browse maps, search google, write notes and other common tasks. Also remember, Voice Actions requires a steady data connection as the speech recognition takes place on the Google servers instead of your Phone.

To get start, touch or click the microphone button on the Google search box on your home screen, or press down for a few seconds on the physical search button on your phone. After that the “Speak Now” screen will appear, and you can proceed.
