I want to ask about a "voice command" that I find very powerful and seems to always be left off the list. It is "Hey Siri." I have seen that it works with my wife's iPhone 7, without pushing any buttons except the Model S voice command button. I have an old Android 5.1 phone, and I happen to like Android phones, so I wonder if this also works with "OK Google" or "Hey Google" for a newer Android phone. "Hey Siri" (or Android equivalent) is really helpful and powerful. (Please don't confuse this post with using a smart speaker in your house to do things like start charging your Tesla. This is not about that; I'm talking about saying "Hey Siri" while driving down the road.) It allows you to conveniently send a text or an email, make a note, search for an answer to any question, set up an appointment, etc. while driving (i.e. before I forget...). I am hoping this will always work, and neither Tesla nor Apple/Google will disable it b/c it's "dangerous". If it only works with iPhones, that will make my decision about my phone upgrade; I would have to switch from Android back to Apple iOS just so I can have this feature. Who can further educate me about this topic; particularly, is Google Assistant for the latest Android OS integrated as well as Apple Siri seems to be? Does the Siri voice command still work with the latest iPhones, and will it (probably) always work? Thanks!!
