Default The problem with voice control

I've never been much of a voice control person. Speaking outloud to my phone seems so impractical in public places.

However with a new car and new phone I'm starting to get used to it and the problem I'm finding is the things I can't do. I really want to be able to pause podcasts and music and stuff like that with voice. Connecting to bluetooth is another example.

One major annoyance is how setting reminders still needs you to click the screen.

It's a weird thing, I either don't want it or I want MORE !!!!

Part of me is just making a point and part wondering if people know magical voice tricks

I am hoping it is really trained to your personal voice. It will be funny when both the wife and I say "OK GOOGLE" at night and both phones takes commands.

It tries to only respond to your voice. It usually works, but not all the time. (If another person with a similar voice tries it)
