When a Bluetooth headset is connected, speaks the name, time, and contents of text message using Google TTS. Enable voice commands to ignore, reply, or call with speech recognition.

Available Voice Commands:
Call ("Call")
Reply* ("Reply")
Ignore ("Ignore")
Repeat ("Repeat")

*Text replies are dictated with voice recognition

When voice commands enabled:
-If no voice command is detected after reading the text, it does nothing and awaits the next text message.

-If command is not understood, asks if you want to issue a command again.

*Please rate the flow if it works and you like it. If you have issues please rate and leave feedback so I can try to fix them*
