Google Now has a ton of functionality built in, allowing you to control many functions of your Android device with just your voice. And on devices that have Google Now voice activation on the home screen, or even better everywhere, it becomes a very useful way of using your phone on a daily basis. However, like with all Google products, Google Now has had its quirks.
Luckily, one of these quirks has finally been fixed by the folks at Google. Asking Google Now to set a timer now works properly and will set a timer in the default clock app. This even works on custom skins, like TouchWiz. Ask it to set a timer, hit one button or wait a few seconds, and a timer you have.
This simple functionality went too long without actually working as intended, so we’re happy to see if work. Try it for yourself and tell us how you like it!
