Voice Actions for Android render typing almost obsolete

Text, type, get directions, search, and more without typing

| Mobile Devices News | Posted: Aug 12, 2010 8:57 pm

Tired of having to deal with a keyboard to shoot texts to friends, navigate your phonebook, or do a simple search? Google is looking to make your life a lot easier. Voice Actions for Android has been launched by Google, and it's a lot more than using voice to search or dial a number. Check out the video outlining the features by Mike LeBeau, Google's lead engineer for Voice Actions.

 

 

Voice Actions include texting, emailing, listening to music, notes, visiting websites, getting directions, and much more. This program is coming preloaded on the Droid 2 and is available on any phone that is running Android 2.2. This is just one more reason for Android phone owners to clamor for the latest OS update for Android that don't already have it.
