How to control android phone with voice
Do you know that you can control android phone with voice? If you want or need to control your Android mobile using your voice, there is a way to do it and it is also possible to send WhatsApp messages with your voice. Voice commands are the order of the day on Android.
Thanks to the presence of Google Assistant or other assistants, we can perform various actions on the device simply by using our voice, without the need to touch the screen or use the buttons on the phone. You can also fully control your phone with your voice.
How to control android phone with voice
There are several options for controlling the phone with your voice. Here we show you how to control your Android mobile using your voice. We will be using a Google application, called Voice Access, which allows us to do this easily and which has been present on Android for years.
Install Voice Access on your phone
Voice Access is an application launched mainly to facilitate the use of an Android phone for people who have difficulty using the touchscreen of the same, as can happen in case of disability or in case of temporary injury. This application allows voice control of the phone.
Thanks to the application, it will be possible to have navigation functions (like asking to go back or go back to the main screen), you can interact with the elements on the screen (scroll, click Next…) or ask to write something. All this without using the screen and of course your hands, controlling your Android phone with your voice like this.
Voice Access can be installed for free on Android, compatible with all phones from Android 5.0. As with other Google apps, there are no purchases or ads within the app.
How to enable Voice Access on your phone
After installing this app on your phone, it is it is necessary to proceed with the authorization o on activation to start controlling your phone with your voice. The steps to follow are not complicated, we just have to do this:
- Open your phone settings.
- Go to the Accessibility tab.
- Click Voice Access (it’s placed at the end of this section many times).
- Turn the switch to activate.
- See the tutorial which shows you how it works.
These steps allowed the app to work on the phone. The same voice access application shows the commands we can use to control an android mobile phone with our voice. In order for us to use the application on your phone, we will need to grant the required permissions.
How to use Voice Access on mobile
Once the application has been enabled on your phone, you can start using it. You will be able to see in your phone’s notification bar that Voice Access is already working, then you can start using the commands you want, among those displayed in the application, to be able to perform functions on your phone.
If at some point you don’t know very well which command to use, you can ask the application “Show commands” and in this way you have access to all the commands that you can use with Voice Access and thus be able to control your Android mobile using your voice. As you will see, applications have a number, so if you want to open one, you just have to tell them the corresponding number.
Voice Access works in several languages, including Italian, so you won’t have any problems on your phone. Those who use their Android mobile in other languages (English, French, German…) will have no problems. The operation is the same and the controls are adapted to each language in which the device is used.
How to control Android phone by voice and send messages with Google Assistant
When using messaging applications, such as WhatsApp, which is certainly the one most people have installed on their phones, we can also use voice commands to use it. While Voice Access will not be used in this case, but the Google Assistant is used to control the app and send messages or make calls thanks to it.
For this to be possible, you need to activate the assistant on your phone and then use one of the necessary commands to be able to send a message on WhatsApp. There are several commands useful in this regard, which will allow easy use of the wizard to send messages:
- OK Google, send a WhatsApp message to (person’s name).
- OK Google, send a message with WhatsApp to (person’s name).
- OK Google, send a message to (person’s name) on WhatsApp (this command is the one that fails the most).
it is also possible make calls and video calls with the assistant on WhatsApp, as we have already shown you. For this we have some commands available, such as “OK Google, make a WhatsApp call to (contact name)” or “OK Google, make a video call on WhatsApp to (contact name) or Call (contact name) from WhatsApp”. Each of these commands will achieve the goal of making that call or video call. The steps to follow are:
- Open Google Assistant on your phone.
- Use the command in question (as shown above).
- Clearly say both WhatsApp and the person’s name in that command.
- If you have multiple people with that name, choose which one to call.
- Wait for the call to be made.
- Talk to that person.
