Default lexus voice commands

new to lexus voice commands, but is there a quick way to adjust the A/C fan speed?
seems strange to have to take eyes off road to perform 2 clicks to lower a/c fan speed, so is there a quick way to do so.

fyi, only had this 2014 gx460 for few weeks, so maybe I am missing something.

The only climate control voice settings are "Warmer" and "Cooler" which adjusts temperature by increments of 4 degrees.

Pressing 'Climate' and then the 'Fan Speed' barely takes 2-3secs

I just leave mine on auto and I've never had a need or desire to change the fan speed.

It seems to me too, that having to use the Nav screen interface to control the climate fan speed is a bit cumbersome and counter intuitive. There are redundant buttons for radio controls -volume and track selection both on the steering wheel and instrument stack, but not a fan speed adjustment? I was puzzled by this too. I also found it lacking that the passenger side doesn't have a separate fan speed adjustment anywhere...Maybe now I'm missing something
Whether or not it takes a few seconds to adjust it after you learn how to- is inconsequential. There should be at least a voice command for it, but I'd settle for a good old fashioned push button. So far my two week impression of the interface/user controls is tepid at best. This is one example of why.... Just my opinion.
