    My question has to do with the Ok google voice command on Android.
    I don't know how to use it well. How do I give a command. Do I have to utter the word Ok google before issuing all command? when I do that I am put on the search box of Google.
    Let me make it clearer: If I say Ok google open whatsapp, it opens it, but when I say ok google open turning point, which is a whatsapp group, I am put on the search box of Google. I hope you now understand the problem.
    I know Ihave to say Ok google to get google to start listening to my commands.
    Now Added to this, how do I use the command to select something to read: for instance, if I am on Gmail, and I want to read a message, how do I use the command to select a specific message, and then how do i get it to read that message.
    This also applies to items on other apps.
    I have the latest version of the google now launcher as well as voice access and Ok google app all installed. I've also done an audio history, that is a recording of my voice.
    Thanks and best regards.

    Welcome to Android Central! You can use Ok Google commands to open an app, but you can't use them to do specific things within a 3rd party app.

    As far as I know, there is no OK Google command to have it read your email -- this is probably because emails are more likely to be a lot longer than a text message. You can have Google read your last 5 text messages, though, by saying "Ok Google, show me my last messages."
