Seems like it would be a reasonable addition, and would definitely add to the usefulness of Google Now. I do like the way Microsoft implemented it with Cortana: Cortana can inherently launch any app, but the developer of the app can additionally choose to code any voice commands that they want, and the user can say those commands through Cortana. This method makes Cortana's app controlling abilities extremely scalable and allows app developers to bring a new dimension to their applications.
I hope Google makes that type of consideration in regard to scalability with however they choose to implement this.

Exactly how long has Google Now been out? How long has Cortana been out?
I see you also didnt read the article....
"AP has a whole write up about why they believe this feature is on the way, but we actually didn't finish reading the article because the evidence is pretty blatant: Google showed us this exact functionality in the demo videos for Android Wear."

it seems my friend you have a shallow knowledge of voice commands on windows phone. it actually started with window mobile not Cortana

The post I was responding to specifically said Google Now and Cortana...
I had voice commands on my E815.....waaaay back 2005.. And that wasnt even Win Mo.

People were using voice commands on regular cellphones. My phone history doesnt start at Android...
I never said MS wasnt the first to use it.....I know they were there from the beginning. That post was about Google Now vs Cortana.

This would mean that when you get a Facebook Messenger notification, you could simply say "reply..." to send a message back.
I laughed too much at this line. The facebook messenger app still doesn't follow any design guidelines of android, and if this change becomes real, it will take them at least 28-30 years to bring that to the android app.
