The future is truly now. Seriously. Sounds cliche, but it's true. Because gone are the days we have to encounter very mundane, very first-world problems. No longer do we have to pull down our masks so our phones can recognize our faces. No longer do we panic in fear of being locked out when we make a typo on our passcode. No, these are problems of the past, because we can now unlock our phones with just our voices.

TikTok user @combat_vet_roobz posted a video of their kid showing the world exactly how it's done. Prepare to have your mind blown.

As demonstrated in the video, the first thing you're going to do is turn your phone so that it shows the screen where you enter your passcode. Using an erasable marker, draw dots above the numbers in your passcode. Then unlock your phone, go to settings and click on "accessibility". Then click "voice control", "customize command" and "custom" in that order. 

Once you're there, click "create new command" and create an action that will play out after you speak a keyword or phrase. Set whatever keyword you want, click "action" and tap on the dots the same way you'd tap out your passcode. This will help you unlock your phone using just your voice.

And that's it! This is such a cool feature and it's something fun you can play around with. Advances in technology are truly amazing.
