Google silently adds voice confirmation to reminders


Setting a voice reminder in Android just got easier. In the past you’d speak your piece and tap a button to confirm what you wanted, but there had to be a better way. While this worked, the general idea behind voice controls is reducing the number of actual button presses needed to complete a task. Obviously aware of this, Google has silently added voice confirmation to reminders. It’s a minimal update, but it’s highly appreciated. After launching Google Now and requesting a reminder, you can now finalize things by saying yes. In the case of the Moto X, it eliminates button tapping altogether. Go ahead and give it a try.
