Firefox voice is a new experiment of Mozilla, just released as a beta version. This experiment introduces voice control into Firefox web browser, which is only suitable for desktop Firefox.

  • Play music or video;
  • Read the webpage;
  • Browser controls such as
  • Clipboard activities such as

  • And more.

Firefox voice already supports many voice commands. As the development is still in progress, there may be more breakthroughs in the service in the future.

However, Firefox voice currently only supports English. Activate the Firefox voice icon in the address bar to use it.
