Lollipop users can now control WiFi, Bluetooth, flashlight toggles with voice commands

Google Now Toggles - Android 5.0

Android 5.0 introduced a flurry of changes to the platform with new additions being added periodically. The latest of them could be pretty handy for customers who are in a hurry. Users have discovered that Google Now voice commands can now successfully turn on/off WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC and even the flashlight on their devices. You can even turn off location sharing using this command.

As most of you are aware, Android 5.0 has a flashlight built natively, so the addition of this feature is not surprising. To access this feature, all you have to do is trigger the “OK Google” command and say something as simple as “turn on WiFi” or “turn off flashlight”. Once your voice is recognized, Google Now will provide a response to confirm the action.

Google Now can already do a lot of things, but the addition of voice commands for essential features like the flashlight, WiFi and Bluetooth will make the lives of the users a lot easier. This feature could be rolling out with the latest version of Google Search, so remain patient if you don’t see the feature yet.
