A few weeks back, the beta version of the AutoVoice app added support for using the app with Google Home. This week, the new, non-beta version of AutoVoice 3.0 has been officially released and adds support for Google Home and Amazon Echo that use its Alexa digital assistant.
So, from now onwards, Google Home and the Echo speakers will have the ability to recognize direct and natural language voice commands for Tasker using AutoVoice. Those who are using Home and Echo can now say “Ok Google, open AutoVoice” or “Alexa, open AutoVoice” to start using the app and Tasker commands.
In addition to Google Home and Amazon Echo, the new 3.0 version adds natural language support for AutoVoice commands. Thanks to this, you will be able to use more flexible and conversational voice commands with AutoVoice, thereby eliminating the need to remember your exact voice command trigger. It’s worth noting that to enable this feature, users will have to pay $0.99/month. This is intended to compensate for the cost of running the servers used to support language commands.
Besides that, AutoVoice 3.0 brings support for IFTTT integration, meaning you can now activate IFTTT recipes directly from AutoVoice using natural language commands.
In order to get started, you will have to purchase Tasker ($2.99) and download AutoVoice. The latter offers you a 7-day free trial after which your commands will be reduced to 4 character length and you will have to fork out $2.49 for the full version.
