Now at 130 commands, 151 submissions!

We've added a link in the app to tweet me at @LifeMiddie for app improvement ideas.

And a new category "Not What I Said", reserved for some strange results that don't quite match the command, like "Lower Driver Side Window". What it actually does (which is cool...), adjusts drivers vent to blow directly on their face.

At this point, with the quality of the voice recognition, I don’t know why we can’t create our own trigger word for the listen to passively listen for.

I'd wonder if it's simply to prevent accidental commands.

With controlling lights, TV, etc at home is one thing.

Controlling a car is quite another.

And... at the point that other commands are allowed, like those that could control car behavior (TACC settings, Autopilot, etc), it's important to use a button to engage.

But if one can create their OWN trigger word, the chances of this should be much reduced.. it's not like in the Mercedes where everytime you say "Mercedes" in the car it says "how can I help you". For discrete libraries and listening, coding a users own trigger word is trivial and greatly reduces any false action.

I'm astounded how often saying "Google [something]." gets the "Command not understood" response.

I've been trying and mostly failing to figure out what specific words or phrases causes the car to get confused when asking it to Google something.

Including any numbers in what you say seems to throw it off pretty reliably. (For example: "Google Five Guys hours.") But apart from that, it seems very scattershot.

I've found that if you say "Google Search" followed by what you want it works better. The only problem is that the first word of you search is "search" but it still works.

Just put this request on Twitter. Established forum members get first divs (gosh, that means you get first chance to volunteer for free...??)

Time for an update now that the newness of V10.2 Voice Commands has calmed down considerably:

At present, we average over 3,000 users for the mobile app (we peaked at 10,000 a month ago)

Approaching 200 submissions
162 commands, including 23 future commands

Huge thank you's to @TrevP for the video and @Pirin for the amazing app.
