Voice commands are becoming a staple when it comes to phones and tablets these days. Apple pushed it into the lime light with Siri and Google refined it with Google Now. While some of the features seem to be for novelty sake companies like Samsung and LG are taking a look at using it for navigational purposes. With that being said it appears that LG is working on a phone that will debut some time in 2014 that will feature voice commands at the core of its system.

This functionality will be used to navigate through various system functions. This will help, for example, in the car where handsfree voice navigation is crucial. One function may include zooming in and out of maps, but from what it sounds like voice navigation will work throughout Android itself. That’s about it on the software front. On the hardware side of things the device may sport a Snapdragon 800 processor which should help the software run smoothly.

Other than that there isn’t much to go on. LG hasn’t said anything regarding such a device. Voice navigation seems to be a logical step in a hands free world. How about you folks out there? Does the idea of voice navigation on a system wide level intrigue you?
