‘Ok Google, Take a Picture’ Goes Live on Google Search App

‘Ok Google, Take a Picture’ Goes Live on Google Search App

If you’ve ever wanted to take a picture hands-free by simply prompting Google of your intentions, then Google’s latest enhancement to their Android Search App and Google Now will allow you to do just that.

When you want to capture that perfect moment, all you have to do now is hit the microphone icon or say “OK Google”, then “take a photo” or “take a video” and Google will launch the camera app in the specified mode.

Whilst this is pretty useful, it will be more noticeable for those devices with “Ok Google” for true hands-free operation. For those devices where you still have to manually open Google Now in order to hit the microphone button, it’s still a button press which could equally be the camera.
