Google Maps adds in-navigation voice control among other features | Android and Me. I never grow tired of checking out new enhancements to the GoogleVerse. I have been drawn in completely to the universe of Google, in which everything is a voice command away. We are so close to the Enterprise computers that converse with us about anything, and which bring the knowledge of the universe to us wherever we are. New enhancements to Google Maps now permit me to converse with my smartphone en route to my destination. Often, for one reason or another, I want to know whether another route would be preferable. Until now, I had to pull over, stop the car, grab the phone, and click to find alternate routes. Now, I just tap the microphone button, and say "Show Me Alternate Routes". In the same fashion, I can ask about Traffic ahead, In the future, this will be fully voice controlled by the now famous "OK Google" command. Brave New World.
