Google Now Gets Voice Control For Music Playback

Some Android users are starting to see a cool new Google Now capability pop up: If you have the update, you can use “OK Google” to fast forward to the next track or pause playback. Small update, but very handy.

YouTuber MO Jams shows the feature in action above, and Android Police predicts that this addition will get fleshed out a bit, eventually moving to control media playback in deeper ways. As for now, it’s a neato little capability that definitely feels like part of a larger feature set. Say, maybe for wearables or in-car integration? [Android Police via TalkAndroid]
