Google Mobile drops huge voice features!



The new shot around the world for two days now about a Google press conference, and no other real information. Speculation shot from being related to the Chrome update yesterday to some of the Gingerbread-esque features we saw at IO, and even Gingerbread itself. While the announcement was not nearly as epic as Gingerbread, we did get a rather impressive update to Google’s existing Voice Action system!

The system only works with Android 2.2 at the moment. Voice actions allow you to control the phone with just the voice action. While the original setup was impressive, this new update proves to be significantly more versatile. Speak any of these commands to perform a Voice Action on your phone:

  • send text to [contact] [message]
  • listen to [artist/song/album]
  • call [business]
  • call [contact]
  • send email to [contact] [message]
  • go to [website]
  • note to self [note]
  • navigate to [location/business name]
  • directions to [location/business name]
  • map of [location]
