How to Listen to your Google Voice Voicemail on your Google Home

When the Google Home was first released, it was (and still is) lacking in many features. You still have no way to set calendar events, read your text messages, create a to-do list, and more.

How to Play Music or Podcasts over Bluetooth on your Car Stereo without A2DP Support

One of the more frustrating experiences with purchasing a car is dealing with the "upgrade" packages that may seem unnecessarily expensive.

Automatically Avoid Tolls in Google Maps with Tasker

I love getting around on my bicycle. Thanks to Google Maps, finding the destination and arriving there on time has never been an issue for me. There are a few caveats though if you are a cyclist: I’m a roadie. Me and bike paths are not friends. I stick to roads, I don’t feel comfortable...

How to Save your Parking Spot with Tasker

If you are enrolled in and regularly make use of Google Now, you might have seen the ‘where I parked my car’ card. This additional card is displayed whenever Google thinks you have stopped driving and left your vehicle. I don’t drive on a regular basis, rather I cycle everywhere and I find it very flattering...

Unlocking the True Power of Google Home with AutoVoice
