Voice search is one of those features that seems silly, but is awesome once you start using it. With any Android device, there is the magic phrase “Okay Google”. The moment you speak those words, a whole new world of instant information opens up to you. But what are the limits of Google Now? How many questions can you ask it?
Google’s been pushing voice actions for a while, adding tons of new features and trying to make it seem more appealing. I, like many of you, thought the whole thing was pretty silly until I actually started using it. Voice search is fast. Really fast. No tapping, no correcting typos (as long as you’re in a reasonably quiet room, of course), and no scrolling through menus for contacts if you’re trying to call a friend. You can do everything nearly instantaneously—and it’s more than just search.
