I use Google Play Books a lot, especially for tech books and programming etc. Is there any way I can turn pages of an app, specifically Google Play Books, using my voice?

On Jellybean, simply saying next previous back forward will have to work. – andrewk Dec 18 '12 at 19:14
Are you saying this is how it should be or how it is now? – Elijah Lynn Dec 19 '12 at 2:10

I don't think Google Books has a voice interface, which is a shame. I don't know of any book app which does, I'm afraid. Moon+ Reader is a great ebook app which has auto page turning, based on time, but they are very active and are always adding features - it may be worth emailing them and asking if they will implement it?

That would be an interesting option. I wonder if Google Play Books is going to open up our books so other applications utilize them. Or have they already? If so then I would put effort into lobbying Moon+ Reader. – Elijah Lynn Oct 19 '12 at 18:20
So, if there are any Android devs out there looking for a good idea for an app, this would be great! Simply left and right would be sufficient for 90% of users. I would hope Google is working on this but 3rd party is more realistic I think. I would probably pay 5 dollars for this functionality if it were available. – Elijah Lynn Oct 19 '12 at 18:21
