Android 11 - How to use the new voice access feature

The Android 11 system is full of new features and settings, where you will find that the chat bubbles feature is enjoyable and the built-in screen recorder is great, and the renewed notification shade makes it easier to stay on top of ongoing conversations than ever before.

It is difficult to define one specific thing as the best general addition to Android 11 but among all that has been added, there is one feature that has the ability to improve the lives of users in earnest, as Google has made a major update to the accessibility feature, where voice access was added using the latest version of Android operating system.

If you are interested in using voice accessibility in Android 11, here's what you need to know.

How to get the voice access feature in Android 11:

Voice access is not installed in Android 11 by default, so you will need to go to the Google Play store to download the voice access app.

How to customize (voice access) application:

Before starting to use the app, we recommend that you customize it a little bit so that it works the way you want, and we recommend that the application bubble appears on the home screen of the phone, as you can do this by following the following steps:

Swipe down from the top of the screen to display the notifications panel.
Tap Settings in the Voice Access app notification.
Click the toggle button next to the activation button to display a continuous shortcut on your screen.
Once the blue bubble appears on the phone screen, you can click on it at any time to give voice access and start talking, you can also tap the bubble continues to move it to any side of your screen, and the bubble will stay on top of your screen regardless of what you do as well.
Another useful shortcut is to enable the Voice Access Action key. Enabling this key allows you to set a map to raise or lower the volume of your phone, to turn on Voice Access, which makes it more convenient than the activation button above, and to enable it:

Swipe down from the top of the screen to display your notifications panel.
Click Settings in Voice Access Notice.
Click (Configure action key).
Press the activation key.
Press the volume up or down button.
Click OK.
Click (Activation key behavior).
Select the behavior you want for the key.
There are some other audio access settings that you might want to check, such as turning them off if you don't detect speech for 30 seconds or choosing whether voice access is disabled when you touch the screen of your phone.

How to use voice access in Android 11:

Now that you understand how to set up and customize Voice Access, let's take a closer look at how it actually works.
Do you see all the numbers that appear on the screen when Voice Access is turned on? Before the release of Android 11, you could only interact with the feature by saying these numbers. For example, if you are in the Twitter app and want to create a new tweet, you should say (14), but the big change in Android 11 is that it allows audio access to run locally on the device and understand the context. This means that voice access is much faster than ever.

Now, on Android 11 you can just say (open Twitter, create a tweet) to open the Twitter app and start tweeting, in addition, you can say (Notification Panel) instead of a specific number to see the notifications, as these numbers are still present if you want to use it, but the ability to speak naturally to your phone to perform these different actions is ten times better than before.
