OK Google Answering Machine

Google has been hard at work in extending the services that Google Now and Google Search can handle. Just a few days ago we saw how Google Now cards are being updated to support up to 70 different apps in order to provide users with timely suggestions when Google assumes it useful to you. The project doesn’t end there though, and today we find another piece of the puzzle being updated.

Google has silently updated its Android Developers Google+ page with the news that the “Ok Google” command will now support third party apps as well. You can say things like “Ok Google, listen to NPR,” and the service will launch the NPR app. Services like Shazam, TripAdvisor, TuneIn, Zillow and others are also included on the list in the source link. Google also gives developers a chance to visit a specific portal in order to submit command options for their specific apps.

A very need update for those that rely on the Ok Google command. Hopefully this brings added benefits to those that use it through Android Wear.
