You can now use the Google App to send text messages to Viber, WhatsApp and more

Google Search
The Google app is an amazing understated app, which handles more and more of the ‘magic’ functions of Android such as sending a text message with your voice, every day. Google has just announced that the Google app can now send text messages using voice commands to a variety of new clients, including Viber and WhatsApp.

The new addition will be expanded to more apps, but begins with Viber, WhatsApp, WeChat, Telegram and NextPlus as well. This works in English only at the moment, even outside the US, though you will need the latest version of both the messaging and the Google app.

Google will be working on adding more apps and languages to use the voice commands in the future, so keep an eye out for more additions.

Which Messaging app should be included next?

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Can you imagine Apple integrating third party apps into something so core to their OS? This is why Google wins 🙂
