Google's voice search service now supports third-party apps. So, next time you can simply say ‘Ok Google' even while accessing apps developed by third-party developers.
"Today, we launched our first set of partners for custom Google voice actions on Android. This feature will enable people to say things like ‘Ok Google, listen to NPR' or Ok Google, show attractions near me on TripAdvisor," Google announced in a post on Android Developers' Google Plus account.

Some of the select third-party apps currently supporting custom Ok Google voice actions include Flixster, Instacart, NPR One, Shazam, TripAdvisor, Tune In Radio, Walmart, Wink, and Zillow.
The select third-party apps currently available to use with "Ok Google" voice search were listed on a Support page with the voice search command for each app.
The voice service recognizes around nine languages, including English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, and Russian. The feature comes with a single API key that supports multiple devices such as phones, tablets and Android Wear-based wearables.
This new feature doesn't come as a surprise given Google has been trying to push its ‘Ok Google' voice commands, just like Apple has been integrating Siri into most of its products.
