The new Google Now update enables our baby to take pictures and record videos with our voice commandment...one of the scenarios I can think of is that while driving and the X is docked on windshield...and it is sunset out there. Without shaking the phone, a picture is captured

I tried it but it only opens the camera app. Is there a specific command to get it to take a picture too?

Sadly no...I was over-excited. Sorry about that. It is just I have seen so many things that I wanted to record while driving before...and both of my hands had to be on the wheel (chicago snowy days). And I thought this might do the trick...can autovoice do it..just curious?
At least this new command saves me from shaking the phone...all I need to do now is just a quick touch.

Since they put the camera in the play store and can issue updates via gapps, I think they should integrate voice commands in the camera app like other phones. For instance have a settings for it to turn it on and use Google now to open up camera app and be able to say "cheese, capture, record, etc"

The note 3 does that, it's definitely possible.

It's basically remapping the triggers

Was pretty excited when I saw this thread and then was quickly disappointed when I tried it and the only thing it did was open the app. I still had to interact with the cera to actually take the picture or record the video. It'll be pretty cool if/when it actually does though.
