With technology getting better and better, voice commands are becoming more common. It is easier for us to use our voice and search for something rather than typing. These voice searches are available to us because of Google Now. Google has given a default wake word ‘OK Google’ and ‘Hey Google‘; but some users find it a little boring to say Ok Google or Hey Google every time. Well, you can change Google Now commands from OK Google to something else.

With the app called “Open Mic+”, you can change ok Google Voice command to anything else from your Android Phone.

  1. Apparently, it works only on android phones. The author of this misleading article should have mentioned at the beginning that what he meant by “Android devices” excluded android tablets.
