In yesterday’s press conference, Google announced its ”Just Speak It” feature for Android 2.2, a new set of voice commands that allow you to perform more actions such as sending text messages, emails, calling businesses, and leaving notes.
The new voice actions have amazing accuracy. I was sending text messages and emails, all by voice input all day. There’s one thing I wish were different though. The “note to self” voice action currently composes an email to yourself with the note being the body of the email.
Instead, I feel Google should have tapped into the Gmail Tasks functionality and create new tasks as the notes. That would be more useful, IMO.
If you’re a froyo user and haven’t already downloaded the update to get these new voice actions, use the QR code below (provided by Google).
