Set custom commands for Google Now

Open the Commandr App on your android and you need to activate the Commandr voice command once by saying ‘OK Google, note to self, turn on flashlight!’’ Once the app is activated you have to type the test command on the app screen.


Once the app is activated you can see the list of the commands in settings of the applications like:-

  • turn on/off Wi-Fi
  • turnon/off Bluetooth
  • turn on/off GPS (for some phones)
  • pause music
  • resume music
  • next song
  • previous song
  • note (adds to note-taking app)
  • any Tasker command you can dream of!


We tested most of the commands on our Google nexus 5 and most of them works without any problem. The developer of the app also promised that in future you will see lots of new commands and features in the app.
