[Android app] Google Search update lets you access your camera with voice

The Google Search app has received a small but significant update today, which allows us to use our voice to pull up the phone's camera. All you have to do is tell Google to “take a picture” or “record a video,” and your phone’s camera will fire up in the mode you mentioned, all ready for you to start capturing some memories.

Fortunately this is a server side update, which means you will not have to update your app in order to see it work. Just give it a few hours and it should work on your device, as long as you are running  or higher.

Obviously having to use your voice is still not as convenient as having a hardware shutter button, which can not only launch your camera app but also help you while you taking your shots. But it is still a great novelty to have on your device. If you find a situation where this voice control is more convenient than just tapping an app icon you will appreciate having this feature on board.
