The Complete Lis Of “Ok Google” Commands

I’m a big fan of using “Ok Google” which is a voice activated command to instruct your Android Phone or Table to execute a command. It also works on iPhones and iPads using the Google App.

Last year in August I reviewed some Google Now Commands   On average, I use “OK Google 6 times a day.  Here are some of my typical Google Now Commands in the last day

  • What time is the next NBA Finals Game
  • Show me my last 10 messages
  • Call my wife
  • Create a calendar event
  • How do you say “sometimes” in Spanish
  • How far is it from my house to Cuenca Sunrise Cafe

Get 2 GB Free Cloud Storage – Today 2/9/16 Only

It seems I always need more storage with several email accounts and a huge photo and video collection. Google is offering 2 gb of free storage by doing a routine security check on your google account settings. The check takes about 2 minutes to complete and is actually very helpful.  I found that several apps and games had access to my Google setting. I quickly eliminated those privileges.
