Using the Voice Access app, users will be able to perform actions like navigate through apps, compose and edit text, talk to the Google Assistant, and recreate gestures using certain voice commands.
Today's mobile devices rely on touch-screen technology for nearly everything, but you can now control your Android phone entirely by voice.
Google on Tuesday announced the launch of its latest app that helps give users who can not access a touchscreen due to certain chronic or temporary reasons hands-free access to their smartphone using only voice commands. While Google has built the app to help people with disabilities, those without a disability can use it too. Now the app is available only in English.
Once you've got it set up, you can launch apps, scroll up and down, and tap on things without lifting a finger. The status bar lights up white with an Assistant "listening" animation to let you know it's ready for your command. Tappable elements on the screen are overlaid with small numerals, so you can just call out any number to mimic a tap. It also supports long-pressing on numbers to access different functions. So instead of tapping, you'll have to use the "Ok Google" hot word to start writing a text or say "open" to open another app. To recall, Google Voice Access has been in beta since April 2016, and is aimed at people with limited mobility.
Touching the screen or otherwise interacting with the phone will turn off Voice Access, but it remains accessible via a floating button (optional) and a notification item.
Google has a new app that allows for full control of an Android phone with your voice - Voice Access. Anyone with an Android smartphone or tablet can head over to the Google Play Store and download Voice Access now for free. However, those without a disability might still find it useful.
