1. Set up Google Now

If you are not a regular user of Google Now first of all set it up, make Google now recognize your “Okay Google” command. Go to settings > voice > OK Google detection and enable all toggles by sliding them to the right. Now you need to train Okay Google to your voice by saying OK Google for three times.

Now if you want to use Google Now offline go to settings > Voice > offline speech recognition and download the languages you need, now you don’t need an internet connection to use Google Now.

2. Add voice commands and automate it

Google Now can work as automatic machine by adding more voice commands from taking a selfie, clearing notification, turning flashlight on and more. To do so download Commandr from Google Play Store and add additional commands to Google Now, you can set custom voice commands for individual function as well.

Google Now can arrange your travels if you use Google Calendar, it will tell you that you need to arrive that place and what time you should leave at, along with the traffic conditions and more, making you a punctual person.
