Google I/O 2015 is around the corner and we have a slight idea about what all is going to take place at the much awaited conference, that includes range of latest wearables from Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects division. The event also holds the potential announcement of Google’s upcoming version of operating system succeeding Lollipop, dubbed as Android M.
In the last Google I/O, which was held in the year 2012, the company announced the entrance of Google Now for Android, which as of now forms the base of Android devices in performing voice search and also voice activated commands.
This year, Google seems to be taking the voice search to a higher level, it means that the company is going to utilize the power of voice even more. It will be introducing a new feature, known as “Voice Access” that will enable users to control applications through voice commands. Although, the function won’t just function all by itself, app developers will be required to add support for that too within their apps (maybe new or existing). This new feature would bring in even more usability for users, wouldn’t it be great if you can open any app just by speaking its name?
The new feature does sounds really good, but there are speculations about it being available on the existing Android operating systems. It might just be launched for the forthcoming Android M. Until now, we only that Google is planning to introduce such feature and that it will be discussing it in the exclusive sessions with developer, basically teaching them how to integrate it in their apps for enhanced user experience.
