How To Video: Add more commands to Google Now1:46 /
Android app Commandr plugs into Google Now to control your phone with your voice.
[MUSIC] Hi, I'm Sarah Mitroff with Cnet. And today, I'm gonna show you how to use Commandr for Google Now. This nifty little app adds more voice commands to Google Now, so you can do things like pause your music, turn off Bluetooth, and more, using just your voice. I'm gonna show you three ways you can use it. So, after you download, installed and then cut up the app, you can open it and pick the commands you want to use. I'm gonna do flashlight, WiFi, scroll all the way down, turn on unread SMS. And you can close the app. So, now I can open up Google now and do one of those commands. Turn on flashlight. And it's on. Turn off flashlight. And it turns off. Next I'll try this command. Turn on WiFi. The app thinks for a couple of seconds, listens to your command and then turns on my WiFi. Lastly, I'm gonna have commander read my unread text messages. Unread SMS. Sharon from fifth [UNKNOWN]. Are you free for dinner? If I go to my inbox there's the message. If there is a command that you want to use that's not already in the app then you can vote for other ones that other people have submitted and hopefully they'll show up in later versions of the. The app. If you're looking for a way to add a few extra voice commands to Google Now, give Commander a try. I'm Sarah Mitroff with CNET, and thanks for watching. [MUSIC]
