Do you know that all your favorite “OK Google” voice commands may soon be working without an active Internet? Great news for users who frequently talk to their phone!

Before we tell you more about it – you might also be interested in our post “Download Google Translate For Android”

The researchers found several evidence in the 4.8 version of the Google app. Several codes indicate that you can send text messages, make calls, play music and use several other voice commands in offline mode. This means that you will never see that annoying “Can’t reach Google at the moment” message again and you will never be left handicapped in airplane mode or while being outside the coverage area.

The update to the app will also bring more features like changing the volume or adjusting the brightness of the screen. So, the time when you will talk to your phone more rather than touching it is almost here.

QUICK NOTE: Free firmware downloads are made possible thanks in part to OVH Hosting & Dedicated Servers – Updato's #1 choice for hosting and storage solutions! Show your support and check 'em out.

The code also hints at a widget (icon) on your home screen that would easily launch a reminder. This would be a great option when you don’t want to be spotted talking to your phone.

The Future Game

Google’s voice capabilities along with a few other things are going to be the key differentiator for Android. As we know, Google Now is already making some loyal iOS users thinking about moving to Android. The future of mobile phones is AI – the mixture of context and anticipating, helping users in deciding what services (apps and other phone functions) they need and when. Considering this, Android is definitely moving in the right direction.
