    Want more voice control than Assistant already provides? Want to show off as a super-nerdy-techie and use your phone with just your voice (well...almost)? Check out this article.

    I read about that yesterday. Looks interesting. Why don't you get it all set up and let me know how it works, etc.?

    I just enabled it on my Pixel 4XL to try for a few days and see if I like it. My wife & kids already tease me about talking to my phone all the time for Assistant commands, might as well try even more voice control.

    But they don't tease me when their phones have issues, when their laptops have issues, when the printer doesn't work, when WiFi stops working, etc., etc. :D

    Isn't that how it goes. You have a very valuable, but sometimes thankless, job. The role that dad and husband gladly plays.

    I have enabled the voice access commands. I will experiment with it for a while. There will be a learning curve to this. But it has some interesting features.
