Android Users Can Now Say “OK Google” to Send Messages via WhatsApp, Viber, WeChat & Others.

“Just say, ‘Ok Google, send a WhatsApp message to Joe’ — after which you’ll get a prompt asking you to dictate your message,” the firm said in a blog post. In April, Google launched custom voice actions on Android, allowing users to control select third-party apps simply by starting with the “Ok Google” command. To kick things off, be it WhatsApp, Telegram, Viber, WeChat, Telegram or NextPlus, you could pick any from the bunch and Google will send your message, giving rest to your thumbs.

Although available only in English, the feature is expected to follow soon for local languages as well and forms part of Google’s drive to displace other virtual assistants in the market, that include the likes of Microsoft’s Cortana and Apple’s Siri. Furthermore, the company says it will be working to add more apps and languages “in the future.” In January, Google updated its main Android app with a big enhancement to Google Now: Serving cards from third-party apps right when they have timely information to provide. The company is opening up its Google app to third-party services so they can provide users with more features while also offering an experience they can’t get anywhere else.

Over the past few months, you may have seen Now cards from many of your favorite apps and new ways to also get things done across your apps by just asking Google something, like “Ok Google, Shazam this song” or “Show me apartments for rent near me on Zillow.” So type less and speak more—your thumbs will thank you,” posted Sunil Vemuri, Product Manager. With broadening the perks of it and opening the service to third-party apps, Google has just made way to an experience the users cannot get anywhere else!
