Google Android Voice Actions - useful, but worth a press conference?
Here's the full list of commands:
- send text to [contact] [message]
- listen to [artist/song/album]
- call [business]
- call [contact]
- send email to [contact] [message]
- go to [website]
- note to self [note]
- navigate to [location/business name]
- directions to [location/business name]
- map of [location]
Plus, of course, the existing voice command to run a Google search.
It's somewhat useful, especially if you need to do things on your phone while driving, but seriously? A press conference? I feel like Google should be saving those for its big, iPhone-killing announcements, instead of underwhelming us with a handy but not-so-revolutionary feature.
Oh yeah, there was also that push-to-phone thing, but we already knew about that, too...
