Google Voice Access App 1.0 (beta), a dedicated Voice control app

A smartphone is all about providing instant information at our fingertips. A few clicks here and there will let you perform incredible operations from texting your beloved ones to searching the most recent topic in the search engines. But you have to use your fingers to perform all those operations. We already have “Google Now” in the Google app for Android that lets the users to control most of the operations over voice control. But, the company has come up with Google Voice Access 1.0 (beta), a dedicated voice app to take the voice control thing to another level.

However, Google launched only the beta version of the Voice Access 1.0 and the app will allow you to edit documents, open your Chrome and do almost anything just over Voice control. To know everything that you can do with the Google’s Voice Access app, click here.

The app will be very helpful for the visually impaired people.

Commenting on the launch of the app, Eve Andersson, Manager, Accessibility Engineering at Google posted in the official blog, “Nearly 20 percent of the U.S. population will have a disability during their lifetime, which can make it hard for them to access and interact with technology, and limits the opportunity that technology can bring. That’s why it’s so important to build tools to make technology accessible to everyone—from people with visual impairments who need screen readers or larger text, to people with motor restrictions that prevent them from interacting with a touch screen, to people with hearing impairments who cannot hear their device’s sounds.”

There is no word yet on whether when the stable version of the app will be released globally. But, we can expect it to happen in the next few weeks.
