According to a description of one of the talks scheduled at this month’s Google I/O event, the company could unveil something known as Voice Access for Android. This will essentially let users control their Android apps with voice, rather than using the touchscreen.
It’s a novel idea and Google will discuss how to implement this feature in existing apps, so this won’t be a feature that is limited to just the stock Android applications. According to Google, this new service will give users “access to their Android device through voice alone.”
Expect Google to go in detail about this feature during the course of the I/O event. It is currently scheduled to take place on the 28th of May at 1PM local time, although there’s another scheduled session to talk about Voice Access which is currently missing from Google’s I/O itinerary.
Reports of Google unveiling Android M have also piqued our interest, so it will be interesting to see what the company has in store for us during its annual developer conference.
