Phone Calls & TextsThis one is easy and you probably know what it does. You just have to say "Call contact" and it will dial straight away. If you have contacts with similar names then it will ask you to confirm which contact do you want to dial. Similarly you can text hands-free too. Say "Text <contact> I'll be right there." The only downside to this is the fact that Google is not very good at picking non-English names.
DirectionsWe all know how directions work with "OK Google" - if you don't here is the list "Directions to" "Navigate to" "How to get to" But this is not what we wanted to share. There are some other cool commands that most users are unaware of like if you are taking a walk you can say "walking direction to..." and our phone will keep you on the right track. To get a map of your present location - you can say "Where am I"
Events & Reminders"Remind me to" is a great command through which your Android phone can set reminders automatically. For example, say "remind me to call Janet on Saturday" and your phone will set it up as a reminder to call Janet. Creating an even works the same way but OK Google doesn't seem to pick up these commands as seamlessly as it picks Reminders. Finally you can set alarms talking to your phone. Simply say "set alarm" and pick a day and date. For example, say "set alarm to hours from now"
MusicNo need to grab your phone and scroll through your collection to listen to songs anymore. Just say "I want to listen to...." and your phone will do the rest for you. You can also try other smilar comands like "play me songs from..." or "play me some" or even "watch..."
Ask Questions...and of course you can ask tons of questions from OK Google. The possibilities are limitless. What you are dealing with is a smart app. For example, if you want to covert currencies, you can say "how much is $50 in pounds" or check your flight status "what is the status of Emirates, flight number xyz" - You can try and ask almost any random question and chances are your phone will reply with a relevant answer 90% of the time.
