HTC Desire :: Voice Actions - Some Commands Missing

Aug 26, 2010

HTC Desire, Android 2.2, new Google Voice Search

Several commands - 'send text to', 'send mail to', 'note to self' and 'go to' - are missing. They are not parsed, and they do not appear in the Help list when voice search is launched.

Is this because I don't use the standard HTC message, mail and browser apps, by any chance? (But they are still on the phone, of course.)

I noticed that if I just speak a web search, it launches the HTC browser, whereas Dolphin is my dafault browser.

HTC Desire :: Voice actions - some commands missing


HTC Desire :: Voice Actions

Aug 30, 2010

I know there was a thread about it on here before, but I cant seem to find it. I'm just wondering how to get it working properly on my 2.2 Desire. I'm in the UK. I know there was mention of changing the language or something?? And I remember someone gave a list of all the actions they had gotten it to do so that would be useful as well as what to say to get those actions.

HTC Desire :: Voice To Text Missing

Sep 1, 2010

My new unbranded desire with 2.2 is missing the 'voice to text icon from its keyboard? Any ideas why this is? Also when I press and hold the search button for voice, it always takes me to the internet. I can get the navigation software to open by saying navigate to destination. Are there certain words that must be said in order to do things?

HTC EVO 4G :: Voice Actions

Aug 21, 2010

I was having a problem getting VA to call anyone in my contacts. It would want to call some random business and offer to Google the person I actually wanted to call. After searching for a while I came upon the solution of clearing out the contacts data - Menu, Settings, Applications, Manage Applications (select "All"), Contacts Storage -- the select Clear Data. Then re-sync your contacts with your Google contacts. You may want to backup your contacts before you do this. I didn't lose any, but YMMV. Note that this also cleared up a sync issue I was having with my Google contacts. May the force be with you and live long and prosper.

General :: Hacking Voice Actions

Mar 1, 2012

I remember sometime in 2009, when google navigation was restrict to US, some people used to Hack it to make it work outside the US..Voice Action is restrict in english. The app is there.. if I change my locale settings to English US, it works... But when I set it back to portuguese, it only works in search mode...I was then wondering if it was possible to hack it to make it work in other languages, since it can already recognize speech pretty well in portuguese...

HTC EVO 4G :: Voice Search Commands

Jul 20, 2010

One of the great features of the the 4th soft button is to hold it down to bring up the voice search prompt. A this prompt there are several commands that are extremely helpful, such as: "Navigate to <place>" opens Google Navigation and gives you directions to <place> "Call <contact> work/home/etc" will call that contact. (Is there a way to set a default so that you can just say "Call <contact>" and it automatically calls that person's cell/home/work?) "Locate.../Map of.../Find..." will all open and search google maps.
"Driections to <place>" will open google maps and give you directions to <place> "Look up <place/thing/etc>" will do a google search

Now that we have Bluetooth Dialing working, does anyone know of printed instructions anywhere? With WinMo 6.1, you could simply say "Help", and it would tell you a list of commands. does 2.2 only allow for voice dialing and nothing more?

Motorola Droid X :: Voice Actions - But No 2.2 Yet - Options

Sep 17, 2010

My friend with an iphone has the Nuance speech recognition SW and it's great. Looking for similar for my X, but all I see that's close is Google's new Voice Actions. It only compatible with 2.2. Is there another option until my OS is upgraded OTA by VZW? I'm not comfortable rooting.

HTC Incredible :: No Voice Actions Via Bluetooth - FAIL

Sep 17, 2010

This isn't really Incredible specific -- more of a general Android 2.2 complaint, but the inability to access Google Voice Actions/Search over bluetooth is a HUGE missed opportunity by Google, in my opinion. I mean, I LOVE the new voice actions -- it's such a great feature and really makes the phone easy to use. However, it's inability to work over bluetooth makes it difficult, if not impossible to use in the car -- a place it would be perfect for. If you want to use it in the car, you basically have to scream loud enough so the phone mic can pick you up over the road noise and it also requires holding down the search button to initiate, so it's not exactly hands free.

As it stands now, if you access the phone via Bluetooth, all you get is the voice dialer, which only provides the ability to dial names and numbers via voice commands. Imagine if you could access voice commands via bluetooth and create text messages and emails while driving, notes to self, get directions, etc. Since voice actions can also handle calling contacts, I'm not even sure what remaining value the "voice dialer" has over the Voice Actions/Search functionality. At a minimum, Google should at least provide a setting for specifying which voice app (voice dialer or voice actions/search) would be accessed when connecting via bluetooth.

Anyone know if it would be possible for a developer to come up with a custom application that would allow voice actions via bluetooth? My guess is that Google will fix this eventually, so maybe I just need to be patient. It just seems like it would be relatively easy and could be included with an update to the Voice Search app.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Google Voice Actions Envy

Aug 13, 2010

Since Google Voice Actions only runs on froyo, you'd think the Hero would be left out.

Try Vlingo, which, since the GVA announcement, is now free. It's pretty amazing. Not perfect, but very useful.

Vlingo can also be set to read your texts/emails to you (good for driving).

Android :: Vlingo Vs Google Voice Search - Actions

Aug 13, 2010

Whats everyones take on both these applications? I've just started using the new google voice actions and think its amazing, and actually interprets my speech quite well! Voice actions I think provide a bit more robust actions over vlingo, as they can be used to get directions, navigate you somewhere, call certain businesses etc.

I do like the idea of Vlingo's, text to speech, reading who's calling you or a new email or message. I use handcent and that has text to speech although its extremely quiet even if i turn it up completely. I also can't understand it most of the time as it speaks too fast in its funny computer voice!

Another plus, Vlingo is now FREE! I haven't downloaded it yet as I'm just enjoying Googles new voice actions, but I would be interested in a comparison with accuracy and speed in both these applications!

Motorola Droid X :: Nuance Voice Commands

Jul 19, 2010

I use a headset with a microphone for Pandora. It has a media button on it that when pushed, will pause or play the Pandora app or accept a phone call in which case Pandora is paused. However, pushing the button with the X brings up the voice command window. Is there anyway to disable or remove this app altogether? If it can be removed, I want to be sure that this app is not associated with the talk to text feature, which I use and like. is there any way to disable or remove this application from the X?

Samsung Captivate :: Google Voice Actions Is 2.2 - Vlingo Is Now Free

Aug 12, 2010

I was googling for "google voice actions eclair" in the hopes that a 2.1 version was in the works, and I found out that Vlingo (normally $9.99 in the market) is now free. It does some of the same things that the Google one apparently does (no setting alarms, though, too bad).

HTC Eris :: Chrome To Phone And Google's One-Button Voice Actions

Aug 12, 2010

So Google has finished their announcement and it's Chrome to Phone & Google's One-Button Voice Actions. Basically my question is are these features that would just need to be turned on in the ROMs or are these things going to be released in future Froyo updates? I understand for Chrome to Phone it's going to be a plugin in Chrome and a download from the market for the phones.

Chrome to Phone on Gizmodo

One-Button Voice Actions on Gizmodo

After doing some research I've found Chrome to Phone available in the Market and in the Chrome Extensions. Works perfectly

Initially got the package signed incorrectly error for the Voice Search, did a nand backup, used titanium to uninstall the default voice search, rebooted and installed voice search through the market. Worked perfectly. I'd assume this would work for any Froyo ROMs but haven't tested.

General :: Voice Actions On Jelly Bean Not Functioning Properly

Jul 9, 2012

I flashed jelly bean onto my galaxy nexus over the past weekend.Playing around with it, I've noticed that voice actions just don't work.Every time I say 'Call Contact', it searches for the phrase instead of performing the action. I've tried other voice actions too like setting alarms, writing emails but nothing works. My phone just performs a web query each time.

General :: Google Music API - Voice Actions To Launch Songs?

Jul 1, 2012

I was looking at all the nice music apps available with nice UIs and noticed that however good they may be, none allow connectivity to Google Music to access songs from the cloud.

I had read that someone released an unofficial Google Music API, however I haven't seen any apps take advantage of this. Also, not many apps seem to take advantage of Google Voice Actions to launch songs.

Any apps that have taken advantage of the API? What happened to the project?

Motorola Droid :: Launch Certain Apps Via Voice Commands

Oct 17, 2010

I was watching TV, and playing with my phone, and saw a commercial that mentioned how you can launch certain apps and do certain actions via voice commands. I had forgotten about that frankly, and have only used it to navigate before. So I tried to launch a song. No go.

So, after a very brief google search, I found this:
Just speak it: introducing Voice Actions for Android - Official Google Mobile Blog

I updated the voice search app (even though it didn't show up in market without the direct link), and tried again to launch a song. Again, no go.

Apparently it only works with online radio apps like Pandora. It doesn't work with the Music player that comes with the damn phone! I mean seriously, how stupid is it that you can't tell it to play a song from your SD card but you can call up a radio channel (and not actually get to hear that song)?

KitKat 4.4 :: Google Music Play And Voice Commands

Dec 15, 2013

I'm not sure I get Google and the Android strategy regarding music. Android has largely removed support for SD cards. Most phone makers are no longer including SD cards. It would appear that for large music libraries, Google wants us to use the cloud, yet....... I can't do a simple voice command to play music stored in the cloud rather than on the device. The results come back with "no results found". The only time it finds the music is when it is actually on the device.

So, I can either constantly have to manually manage a play list (since 32gig is not nearly enough space) or not use voice commands. I don't get it.

General :: Adding Voice Actions Via Lock Screen To Galaxy Nexus

Jan 23, 2012

Either by ROM, App, or Rooting/Otherwise, is there a way to make the lock button have multiple functions on my Galaxy Nexus? My goal is to be able to use Voice Actions from a locked phone (like in the car, for example).I noticed some posts on editing hardware buttons, but that was neither for the Galaxy Nexus nor for a lock button.

Ideally, 2 quick clicks would pull up Voice Actions from a locked phone.I guess if I could permanently have Voice Actions in the notifications section, I could drag down from a locked phone and accomplish the same thing. I use slide to unlock, so dragging down on notifications bar is still available.

I have not rooted yet but would do so just for this functionality (I'm now a corporate tool so I try to hack as little as possible these days)...
