Our trusty ol’ telephones certain do spoil us generally, do not they?

While you carry round an Android gadget in your purple pantaloons all day, you get fairly used to the thought of having the ability to summon your invisible telephone genie — a.ok.a. the Google Assistant — and have it carry out virtually any process conceivable. In need of making you a meatball sandwich (which I preserve hoping the gang from Google will work out the best way to pull off certainly one of lately), there actually is not a lot Assistant cannot accomplish on Android. And that is much more true when you add within the platform’s little-known voice management booster pack.

Final week, we talked particularly about some oft-forgotten Assistant-connected voice instructions for controlling Chrome on Android — the whole lot from pulling up pages in a jiff to sharing stuff together with your comrades, co-workers, and possibly even cockatoos just by uttering a pair alternative phrases. On sure units, you’ll be able to open and shut tabs and transfer round your browser utilizing nothing however spoken phrases, too. It is fairly highly effective stuff.

The issue, although, is that when you get accustomed to having the ability to do all of that on Android, you actually resent having to depend on your precise fingers (pshaw!) to realize the identical types of outcomes on the desktop entrance. A pc packs loads of processing punch, in any case. It oughta have the ability to deal with something an Android gadget can, oughtn’t it?

I would certain as Sherlock say so. For no matter purpose, although, Google does not presently provide a desktop-based model of Assistant for many computer systems — and even on Chrome OS, the place Assistant is out there (and typically fairly succesful), the identical types of browser-specific instructions aren’t supported. Curses!

Cling on, although: Do not sulk away dejected simply but. In my burning want to make the whole lot as straightforward as doable (a flowery manner of claiming “on account of my laziness”), I tracked down a device that may emulate most of Assistant’s superior browser magic and convey the identical kind of time-saving, physical-force-eliminating delightfulness into any desktop surroundings.
