A voice activation battle has broken out between Google with their Android OS, and several phone makers after the global search Company moved to launch  new “voice activation” features for Android phones that eliminates the need to type in information.
Voice actions enables users to carry out tasks via spoken commands rather than pressing buttons or keys.
Android which is the best selling smartphone with both Telstra and Optus is being activated worldwide, at  more than 200,000 Android devices a day
The company believes new capabilities like voice actions will keep it ahead of the game.
Google has also announced it’s making its Chrome to Phone browser extension available next week.
This move means users of Android phones and Chrome desktop browsers can install the extension and simply push whatever content they’re looking at to their handset.
This means that if you’re looking at a map, or watching a video on YouTube, the Android handset will recognise this and open the web page in that application instead.
“Before it was easy to search the web using voice but people do a lot more than just search the web,” product manager Hugo Barra told the BBC.
“Now you can voice up text messages, e-mail a reminder to yourself, set your alarm clock, get directions, find music, open a map and call places.

 
“It really is about interacting with the device in the simplest of ways using the voice.”
Power of speech
Mr Barra told the BBC that voice actions “represents the most significant progress Google has made in speech recognition ever since we launched voice search about two years ago”.
He also revealed that one in four searches done on Android is done using voice search.
