With Android 11, the Voice Access function is renewed
Google will release Android 11 stable in this autumn season but, as usual, the internet giant has already released previews for developers. Specifically, the latest developer preview was released in May to compensate for the inevitable cancellation of the conference Google I / O due to the global pandemic.
Yesterday, Google announced the first beta of Android 11 with many new privacy improvements and some cosmetic improvements.
In addition to adding new features, Google has also improved some existing ones such as “Voice Access”, a function that allows you to control the phone without using your hands, a project dedicated to users with motor disabilities. These users can simply complete basic functions such as opening any app, scrolling the page or interacting with various sensitive elements via the own voice.
One thing I left out of my Android 11 beta hands on was the improved Voice Access, which now understand screen context and content. That was a mistake – it’s actually incredible.
You don’t have to use a grid or button numbers, you can just say what’s on the screen. Watch: pic.twitter.com/wXidxZGVjt
