If you want to do absolutely everything from the "OK Google" voice prompt in Android... well, you can't. You can't, say, fire a rocket at the moon, or end world hunger, or have a dachshund puppy delivered to your doorstep. But developer João Dias is trying his darnedest to make all of that happen, and with the latest update to his AutoRemote app, it's getting closer and closer. You might even be able to make that rocket thing happen if you know someone at NASA.
Version 3.0.43 adds integration with the popular If This, Then That (IFTTT) web automation service, and by extension, all of the various web services and automated gadgets that IFTTT connects to. AutoRemote should be able to activate any IFTTT recipe once properly connected and configured, but here are some of the more relevant examples:
Keep in mind that AutoRemote also works with Tasker, to say nothing of the various extensions for location functions, Android Wear, Chromecast, and Pebble, so the extendable possibilities for this app are now staggering. AutoRemote is a $4 download that works with Android 2.3 or higher, but there's a free test app to see if it will work with your desired functions. Other capabilities are split up among the apps on the joaomgcd developer page.
