Google announced that an update to the Google search app on Android makes it easier to call or text family members, by letting you use words like “wife” and “mom”.
Google will simply recognize who you’re talking about without you having to specify who your wife is, who your mom is, who your daughter is, etc.
If you use such a command, and Google doesn’t know who you’re talking about, it will prompt you to edit accordingly, so next time it will know.
Google explains the update on Google+:
It’s unclear when this functionality might come to the Google search app for iOS.
