A complete list of all ‘Ok Google’ commands


Like Siri for Apple, Google Now is a very competent voice assistant that lives in your portable device. With a huge repertoire of commands, there are over a hundred things you can ask of Google Now. Google have yet to release a complete list of all ‘Ok Google’ commands so I had to make my own. I hope you like it.

Ok Google
To use voice commands on an Android device you first need to ensure it is enabled.

1. Navigate to Settings, Google, Search & Now Voice.
2. Enable ‘Ok Google detection’ from the home screen and all screens if you like.
3. Train the voice module if you haven’t used it before.

To use Ok Google, just say the phrase and substitute the qualifier for your name, place, person or command of choice as signified by the brackets.
