If you've ever tried to use Google Now voice commands to call someone with a more unique name, you may have run into the limitations of voice commands.

"As of right now though, there doesn't seem to be a way to edit the choices you make; so, try not to get a divorce before Google adds that feature."

This is still incredibly, shockingly last century. My dozen yo LG could recognize names based on prerecorded voice tracks, but I cannot teach Google Now a name that's non-English?

Larry Page cannot call Sundar Pichai via voice command, how's that?
