OK Google voice commands

Het besturen van een apparaat met je stem is al heel lang mogelijk maar was vaak beperkt door de kwaliteit van de verwerking van de stem commando’s. Op Windows XP bestuurde ik al programma’s met Dragon Naturally Speaking software, het werkte goed, als je maar in een stille ruimte exact de juiste commando uitsprak.

De spraakbesturing op mijn nieuwe Google Nexus 6P met Android Marshmallow is een verademing en ik gebruik het dagelijks. Als ik wakker wordt zet ik er de muziek mee aan en als ik ga slapen het alarm voor de volgende dag. Je moet het wel in Engels gebruiken, Nederlandstalige commando’s werken nog niet met Google Now.

Hoe gebruik je de Google voice commands?

Er zijn voldoende instructies te vinden online hoe je de functie aan moet zetten. Als je spraakcommando’s aan staan kan je de Google Now functie aanroepen met:

OK Google
Okay Jarvis
Okay Google now find my phone -> zorgt ervoor dat je telefoon een ringtone

Je kan dan de onderstaande lijst met commando’s gebruiken om je telefoon te bedienen en informatie te vragen. je kan Google Now ook een vervolgvraag stellen, bijvorbeeld:

How tall is [naam persoon]? -> vervolg je vraag met -> What about [naam persoon]?

Tekst commando’s

period, comma, smiley face, exclamation point -> toont desbetreffende teken

Als referentie is hier een lijst met alle Google Now commando’s per functie of app naam
