I’m super excited about adding voice to a cooking app I’m working on. Ideally I’d want it to work in both hands-free and button-activated mode. Sometimes my hands are messy and I can’t touch my phone. So I want the app to respond to a wake word like “Hey Food Nerd”. But other times its way more convenient to just hit a button to make it start listening. I’ve always struggled with this on the smart speakers. I find myself yelling Alexa! Alexa! way too often.
Anyway, is there a way to make my app support both button-activation and wake word activation at the same time?
