Android owners are already used to saying "Ok, Google" into their smartphones to accomplish simple tasks like setting reminders, finding directions or searching the Internet. But, now they can do a lot more. Google just introduced a great new feature that will actually let you open and interact with apps using just your voice.

For example, you can now say, "Ok Google, find houses near me on Zillow," and Google will automatically start the Zillow app, showing a map of properties near your current location (this also works with the applications for Trulia and Realtor.com).

But that's not all. You can call up a movie, start your car or listen to a radio app.

However, the feature is still fairly new, so it doesn't yet work with every app on your phone right now. You also have to use specific supported phrases. But is is still pretty amazing to see where this technology is going as voice controlled apps become more common.
