Google on Thursday rolled out a feature that allows users to complete tasks in apps using voice commands. It also provides support for custom voice actions to define new commands. In a Statement, the search engine giant said it was piloting custom voice actions with a select group of partners.

It can recognise voices in 9 languages including English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, and Russian.

The new feature also provides single API key and multi-device support (phones, tablets, and Android Wear watches).
