“Ok Google, Write about Commandr”
Well, seeing as Google Now didn’t automatically write as I requested, it’s safe to say that Google Voice Search still has a number of limitations. When Google first demoed it, this feature was but a shadow of its current incarnation. Google Voice Search commands were unpractical, limited, and sometimes inaccurate. Each update augmented it and today, it can perform a wide range of tasks ranging from setting a reminder and placing a call to giving directions and playing music.
Yet, the list of its capabilities is somewhat conservative and limited to only basic tasks. Something like toggling the GPS would involve telling Google Now to open Settings and then navigating and toggling it manually. However, XDA Senior Member RsenG2X has a solution in the form of Commandr, an app that allows you to add custom commands to Google Now without requiring root access. And with its Tasker integration, the permutations and combinations are endless.
Head on over to the Commandr application thread to give it a shot. The developer assures that it doesn’t drain extra battery and has a bunch of features planned for future versions of the app with a handy upvote system within the app itself.
