Google Launches A Hands-Free Control App For The People With Limited Mobility

Google introduced a new app to help the user’s with mobility issues while accessing their smartphone. The company named the app, ‘Voice- access’ that enables the users to navigate through mobile and apps, write and edit text via voice commands. The app will take over your phone and allow you to access any feature just by asking it.
