Is "Google Now" the only name for the voice assistant on android? It is not unique and search friendly. "Siri" is much better named.
I'd like to see a collection of commands to which "google now" (?) responds. Last night, as I was lying in bed, I sang to my Nexus 7, "Show me the way to go home." (continues with, "I'm tired and I want to go to bed.") I was surprised when Google's Siri, uh, GN showed me a map from where I was to my home (it was just a 15 meter walk...)
I tried several more, but most just took me to a google page. Two others did give me a voice response:
- What is tomorrow's weather?
female voice: "Tomorrow's forecast for Zushi is six degrees and clear." (Zushi is my hometown now.)
- Who is Oshima Yuko?
female voice: "Captain." (of AKB48)
After doing some more searches, complicated by google having google voice, which is itself confusingly named since there is a voice call ability within gmail..., anyway, I found these two page:
