    Re: Google now commands list! Have you asked your nexus to do a barrel roll yet?

    I don't know what I'm doing wrong but when I say things to do it opens web searches. I say "play icehouse" and a web search for play icehouse shows up. I say "text Karen" a web search for Karen opens up.
    It's been like that since day 1 for me.
    Any settings I need to check? I am using Google now
    Sorry for jacking.
    Thank you for this list!

    you hold down the home touch key and when google pops up drag your finger to that then when the google now screen opens simple say google to your tablet and it will automatically open the command to ask any of the things above I simply open the screen say "google" then "listen to forgot about dre" and it asks pandora? play music? or you tube? I select play music on the screen and it takes my directly to that song in my google play library and starts playing it! you can default the action as well

    pretty sweet! sorry tho

    Yes.
    I'm going to start a thread in the help section so this one won't keep going off topic.

    Ask "What is the loneliest number?"


    Ask "What is the loneliest number plus the number of horns on a unicorn?"

    Try text to speech output, turn speech rate to very slow and then hit "listen to example".

    Hilarious.
