You know approximately “Hey Siri” & “OK Google,” right? On recent phone models, you can trigger your voice assistant without even having to touch the phone.
You can even make calls this way, which is handy when your hands are full—but then, of course, how are you going to hear the other person? You’d need the speakerphone on!
In fact, you can do exactly that! Say, “Hey Siri. Call Stacy on the speakerphone.” It works!
Same thing on many Android phones. “OK Google. Call mom on speakerphone.”
Hands free, & hassle free.
