‘Ok Google’ voice command now supports third-party apps

Google’s voice search service now supports third-party apps. So, next time you can simply say ‘Ok Google’ even while accessing apps developed by third-party developers.

“Today, we launched our first set of partners for custom Google voice actions on Android. This feature will enable people to say things like ‘Ok Google, listen to NPR’ or Ok Google, show attractions near me on TripAdvisor,” Google announced in a post on Android Developers’ Google Plus account.

For now, it is testing the feature with limited partners including NPR One, TuneIn, Zillow, Flixster and TripAdvisor.

The voice service recognises around nine languages including English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, and Russian. The feature comes with a single API key that supports multiple devices such as phones, tablets and Android Wear-based wearables.

This new feature doesn’t comes as a surprise given Google has been trying to push its ‘Ok Google’ voice commands, just like Apple has been integrating Siri into most of its products. With support for third-party apps, Google simply takes a step forward in making things a little easier for its users.
