Are you fed up of getting out of your bath top to change the song playing on your smartphone? Or tired of always cleaning your wet/stained hands before picking a call on your phone? I guess your answer is as good as mine.

Many people really don’t know the power of the device they use, nowadays all they do is play music, calls, watch videos surf the net or social media. But that’s not the only thing your phone can do! Right here and now I’ll show you how you can use your smartphone without even touching it, this is possible because of two apps am gonna mention here which are “google assistant” and “siri” apps. Luckily many phones have them inbuilt already but if Your’s doesn’t, then you can download it.
