Google today extended the voice capabilities of its Google Search app by allowing it to interact with third-party messaging apps. People can now issue commands such as "Ok Google, send a WhatsApp message" to initiate and dictate messages in a handful of popular messaging apps. In addition to WhatsApp, Google Search's voice assistant can interact with Viber, WeChat, Telegram, and NextPlus. Google said Android owners will need the latest version of the Google app and the messaging app in question in order for the voice commands to function properly. The feature is available to English speakers, but Google said it plans to add support for more languages and apps in the near future.
