Google Now, which recently got updated with a new alarm like feature that alerts users to disembark from their journey, is now slated to receive updates that promise to let users use voice commands for media control.
According to an Android Police report, the feature has started rolling out to selected users.
Once official, the media control feature in Google Now should let users command the voice assistant to perform tasks such as switching audio track, changing playlists and audio stop.
Essentially, users should be able to use simple voice commands such as "play next song," "change track," to start and switch songs. Also, the Google Now media control feature should let users use "low volume", and "artist information" voice commands.
The Android Police report also states that the Google Now media command feature will initially support voice commands such as "stop music" and "next track". But users can expect other voice commands to be added soon.
Android users can expect the feature to roll out within the next couple of weeks. Google Now media control commands seem custom-made for Google's Android Wear smartwatches. However, the possibility of Google rolling out the feature to its smartwatches seems remote as of now.
Last month, Google rolled out a new feature called 'Google Now Inferred Events' with which users can add calendar events from Gmail.
