Google Introduces Voice Access, It Saves You From Typing On Your Phone
After a couple of years in Beta mode, Google is finally making the Voice Access available on the Play Store. The app allows hands-free usage of your smartphone and is mostly designed for people with disabilities who have a hard time to do simple stuff like take a picture or send a text, but is freely downloadable for everyone.
The service enables you to navigate through apps, compose and edit text, and talk to Google Assistant.
The app offers a deeper integration with the OS and the control of apps, allowing you to â€œtapâ€ buttons with the application itself. You can say â€œScroll forwardâ€ or â€œTap Go Backâ€ and the phone will immediately do it.
Voice Access also gives numbers to all clickable options, when it cannot recognize all of them. You can select a text field, go to the home screen, scroll down the quick settings menu, hold the Home key for Google Assistant.
It can also delete and undo lines and words while writing. The service is currently available only in English, but Google promises â€œadditional language support coming in the futureâ€.
