SS46: Hey Edge - voice control

Iron Contributor

Suggestion (SS): 46 Classification: VOICE CONTROL
PRIORITY IN MY OPINION: 2-3 on a scale from 1 (low) to 10 (high)


Bing already has some integration of voice control, Firefox too. Now i think it's time for Hey Edge function.


Examples of tasks Hey Edge should be able to do:


-Hey Edge, move tabs to the right to another window, hide it in macos, save PDF and add all links to bookmark folder IMPORT for all tabs in this new window; once done close the window.

- etc.


If we can run such multiple rules without Hey Edge would be cool too, so something in keyboard maestro style. Obviously first we need to support a better way to run such actions and similar actions without Hey Edge, but once this is done, different action can be implemented in Hey Edge too.


Then it depends, sometimes is much faster to do manually instead of saying Hey Edge... (and maybe Hey Edge doesn't understand what we say too...., like Bing does)


To be more faster instead of saying "Hey Edge, save pdf for all tabs to the right" or similar, we just say "Hey Edge, pdf right". The same for all other examples


You can even integrate a smart Hey Edge, where i can combine my manual and Hey Edge actions.


Example: i'm reading a pdf. at the same time i say "Hey Edge, pdf right once i say NOW". then i read pdf on tab 2, 3, 4, 5. Once done i say "NOW" and you export all pdf to the right (based on the tabs where i requested this rule). This means in the same time i can close and open new tabs, you do the action only once i say "NOW". Such "NOW" actions can be implemented in so many workflows and would be a great productivity boost.

@edgesuggestionsWhat about "Hey Microsoft?"

@Kam yes, but it's too long for me. At the end Hey Edge works inside Edge, and not with Chrome, Vivaldi, ..

@edgesuggestions Ok, suggestion accepted by Kam.
