In this technology-efficient era, smartphones are playing a vital role in many areas including Entertainment, Education, Connectivity, Business. Android smartphones are the next big thing in Technology Industry. Today, people from every class and group are using Android smartphone. It surely increases the chances for developer to create android apps that meet the requirement of users. There is a big scope in field of Android App Development.

But, the matter-of-fact is that today, Speech Recognition is one of the most demanding feature for android app. Particularly, speech recognition interface is used in educational and business app like Amazon Kindle or Assistant. Speech Recognition is one of most important aspect of any Auto-Scheduling app which perform tasks itself on the behalf of users.
