Motorola Droid X :: Voice Search Button Works Even When Phone Is Locked
Aug 2, 2010
When the phone is locked, but the screen is on, if you hold down the search button for a couple of seconds and then say something, the voice search will run. when you unlock the phone, you will see the results. when the screen is off however, it doesn't work. it only happens with the screen on and the phone locked. i thought that none of the buttons should work when the phone is locked?
So heres a random problem that started happening recently I used to be able to reboot my phone and it would work fine again, now I'm SOL. So my mic doesn't work when I make/recieve calls unless I turn on speakerphone. No one can hear me unless its in speaker mode. If I do a voice search, voice record, etc, nothing happens. The only way I can talk on my phone is if I'm on speaker phone. I've rebooted, tried inserting headphones into the headset jack and removing, etc. I guess my final step is to factory reset and see if that fixes it. Are there any known solutions? I did NOT change any configuration. Oh, and I should throw out there, that once in a blue moon it DOES work on regular phone. This is totally random.
I am currently running the 2.2 Froyo leak on my Droid X, and I noticed that there is a Voice Search app in the Market that my phone does not recognize as being installed. Is this an updated version of the software included in the leak?
I installed Froyo 2.2 and now on the home page when I press the "search" button it only searches internet. On 2.1 this would search my phone, calendar, contacts.... as well as suggestions for internet. Anyway to turn this feature back on? Somethnig must have gotten reset.
Before, when I pressed the search button (the one with the magnifying glass) it cued up the google search bar. Now, after theming, the search button does nothing from the homescreen, but does still work while in applications, the browser, the market, etc. I am running launcher pro, deodexed w/ revolution.
I am always changing the volume accidentaly, especially while I am streaming Pandora or slacker when my screen is locked. Also I keep accidentaly turning my ringer down. Is there a way to totally disable the volume buttons or at least make them less annoying?
This morning I was listening to RadioTime with my phone in my pocket with the screen off and 3 separate times the voice search was activated. As far as I know I didn't press anything while it was in my pocket, has anyone else had this problem or does anyone know what I can do to stop it because it is really annoying.
Ever since I rooted I can no longer use any voice search on my droid. It always tells me that its has to force close as soon as I click on the icon. Is this a known issue with bugless beast 1.2 that I just have to deal with? I love having my phone rooted but id rather have a fully functioning phone that a rooted phone.
I recently rooted and ROM'd. It used to work that when I held down the little magnifying glass in the lower right corner of my screen it would bring up a voice search that let me say pretty much anything... navigate to [here], call [this person]. It's stopped doing that. Now when I hold it down it brings up a little message saying "you haven't enabled quick compose, please enable it from handcent settings"
My Droid 1 broke today, picked up a DX. With the newest voice search on my droid I could say "call starbucks".It would automatically call the nearest starbucks.Now on the DX it doesn't.It comes up with a list of places that are not even in my state.
Just exchanged my droid for a new one 3 days ago, the first one I experienced crackling in the speakers after 3 weeks. Today is the first time I have tried the voice search on this phone and it force closes every single time. Any ideas?
When in car home and i try to do a voice search saying "call 'john doe', mobile phone" all it does is search google for what I said. I want to call a person using my voice through car home like the example they give you on the car home menu. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong, and why it gives you the option to "call ' john doe', mobile phone" if it doesn't work?
I was trying to use the voice search app, and now I cannot get it to work. Every time I open it I get a FC. Can't uninstall it, and it is the latest version. Not sure why it stopped working. Running CM6 with Slayher 1.1 and LauncherPro.
My power/lock button no longer works. Phone hasn't been dropped, only had it for 3 days and it's been babied. I hoped pulling the battery and rebooting might help, but it didn't. In fact, after that the only way to get it to reboot was to plug it into my computer via USB.
Is there anyway to switch the Voice Dialer application with the Voice Search application? I want to be able to activate Voice Search with a bluetooth headset, instead of Voice Dialer (so I can use navigation, google search, and all that jazz...handsfree).
I got the OTA 2.2 a day or so ago. I have discovered the app "voice searce" I then downloaded the app in the market. I then viewed the short intro and then I tried it out It took a while and I had to ask for help on this forum but finally I got it to sort of working. I decided to send a test text to my wife so I tapped on the app and once it loaded I said "send text to xxxxxxxxx" (my wife's name) "This is a test" After it read my voice I got a screen that looked like this to: xxxxxxxxxxxx (my wife's name as listed on my contact list)
message:This is a test I then tapped on the send button and then Sorry The application Voice Search(process.com.google.android.voicesearch) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.
I had tried this over and over again and I always get the same message.
I am using Motorola Milestone UK version with AT & T. G Mail and Yahoo etc work fine. Data plan also work perfect wih At&T 2G. AT&T 3 G can not use with Milestone because 3 G band of AT & T is not supoerted by Milestone.
However, real problem is that when I call anybody, he always finds my voice breaks on Milestone. When I switch to speaker they find my voice perfect. I can hear their voice clearly. Any body has same problem.
Secondly, I would like to dowload "Car Home" app which is available with Droid. It is not available in Market place. When I try to see how it is intsalled in my friend's droid, it shows 0 KB. Does this app is part of Android for Verizon. When I dock the phone in Car dock, as I dont have Car home app so phone does not pop up Navigation window which is part of Car Home. I can use Google Map manually. This is not big problem.
I have 2.2 OTA on my DX and I have the Google Search widget on my home screen. If I do a voice search through that widget, the results come up in the stock browser. If I do a text search, the results come up in my default browser (Dolphin HD). How do I get voice results to open my default browser instead of the stock browser?
