Google Now is giving users helpful suggestions on how to use voice search

In case you use the Google Now launcher, take a closer look at the search bar on the homescreen. It usually says, “OK Google” in faint print next to the microphone, reminding you that voice search with the “OK Google” prompt is a feature that’s available to you, if you need it.

But lately, Google has been giving users (including me) some helpful hints. Here are some of the ones I’ve seen:


“OK Google… Open Gmail”


“OK Google… Set a timer”

And my personal favorite:


“OK Google… Define love”

I’ve also seen: “OK Google… cat videos”

What has Google Now been suggesting for you? Do you have any gems to share?
