The power to get things done much easier when using the Google search app will now be in our hands now that Google has announced the ability to use custom voice actions with third party applications.

 

As of the press time, custom voice actions are just well-matched with preferred business partners. But in lieu to that, the search mammoth aims to bring this functionality to more applications, in many succeeding years.

 

In regards to custom voice actions, smartphone users, with enabled voice actions on their handset, can be able to say things like “Ok Google, listen to NPR”, only to start playing a new story through the NPR app on their device.

One good benefit mobile users can have is the ability to say “Ok Google, show attractions near me on TripAdvisor”, just to look for TripAdvisor results without having to launch the app the traditional way.

 

So for now, why not enjoy this feature? Well, custom voice actions are now live in Google search for Android. However, there’s a little catch. You’ll have to wait for more developers to start implementing the code into their apps that might already be on your smartphone.

 

Despite the fact that Google has yet to publicize a full list of mobile apps that prop up this voice action feature, it seems a little spoiler has already went out of the hand by suggesting early partners which include NPR, TripAdvisor, TuneIn, Wink, Shazam, and a few others.

Moreover, Google also just posted a big list of “88 things you didn’t know you could ask Google“, which includes some of the new partners who are, by now, using the custom voice actions feature. While techies are a bit excited for the launch, I’m positive that it’s going to be another culprit of faster battery draining.

 

For that matter, let me suggest you an easy to use and easy to maintain, lipstick charger which now only cost $21.98 from its original price of $35.98. Why choose it over many options out there? It’s simply because this handy little gadget can power up your iPhone 5 (also 5s, 4s, s, 3GS), Samsung Galaxy 2 (also S3, S4, S5), Nokia, Droids, Android smart phones and other USB charged cell phones, thus making it a must-have if you want to stay connected while on the go.
