Google Now is present on almost every Android device today, however, the wizard is not always used by most users. To get the most out of the service, we've decided to make a list of the best voice commands you can use.

Using Google Now Voice Commands

To open Google Now, simply go to the Google search bar or open the official search app (Google App), and select the microphone cone displayed in the right corner. Many devices and smartwatches respond to the "Ok Google" command to activate the service automatically.

Meteorology

Google has overhauled the Google Now weather forecast panel again. Now the information is displayed, simplified as the weather to up to 10 days, and weather conditions like the humidity. If location services are enabled, the information displayed will be relevant to your location. Use the command "How's the weather"
