You know what’d be a great feature for a smart head unit of a car? Voice controls. You know why Android Auto didn’t include the “OK Google” trigger phrase to launch a command until now? We don’t either, but that’s apparently what Reddit is hot about today.

The November 29 release of the app does not list the new ability in its changelog, but apparently, the feature works. Whether you’re using the app on your phone or on said head unit, you should now be able to ask Google to change up your jams without pressing the microphone button.

The odd irony is that for all this time, you could still trigger “OK Google” from outside the Android Auto app.
