Have you ever wondered just how many things 'OK Google' voice commands can do? Wonder no more (or at least wonder less) - a new site called ok-google.io has set about documenting over 150 voice commands for Google on your Android device. Examples include:

  • Open [webpage]
  • Increase/decrease brightness
  • Take a picture
  • Show me my messages
  • What's my next appointment?
  • When is my next alarm?
  • Set the volume to full.

And so on and so forth. The site overs a total of over 1000 example permutations for these commands, too. I didn't even know the "increase brightness" one was a thing, or "set volume to full" (max also works). In fact, I'm discovering even more permutations that the site doesn't list - set brightness to maximum/minimum, for example.

The site itself is also quite beautiful, which certainly helps - and it has an equally pretty mobile interface. Categories include things like device control, math, definitions, stocks, conversions, weather, time, and more. It's really just kind of fun to explore and experiment with variations on the commands you didn't even know existed.

Now, this site doesn't have every OK Google voice command - especially those for particular apps, like Shazam. And the aforementioned discovery I made about about brightness minimum/maximum. But this is a pretty full list of the more common voice commands, and the most comprehensive one we've ever seen by any stretch of the imagination. It makes you think: maybe Google should get on publishing a list of its own that is truly complete.
