Google hopes its new “voice actions” feature for Android phones will continue to boost sales.

Voice actions enables users to carry out tasks via spoken commands rather than pressing buttons or keys.

Android was the best selling smartphone operating system in the US in the second quarter of 2010, according to research firm Gartner.

At a recent news conference Google claimed to be activating more than 200,000 Android devices a day. The company believes new capabilities like voice actions will keep it ahead of the game.
