    Google Unveils Awesomely Fast And Accurate Voice Actions For Android

    Aug 12, 2010


    Today at Google’s office in San Francisco, the mobile team took the stage to unveil a couple new products. Hugo Barra, Google’s director of product management for mobile kicked off things by noting that we’re entering the mobile supercomputing era. What he means by this is that thanks to computation in the cloud, modern mobile devices are actually more like supercomputers.

    The first new feature Google showed off was the ability to send text messages with your Android phone completely with your voice. This is a part of Google’s new Voice Action feature in their Voice Search application which is available starting today for Android phones. It’s awesome — but that’s not the only voice action.

    Another feature is the ability to call any business in Google Search. This does not have to be a company in your local contacts area — it can be any business.

    Sounds pretty sweet, Ive never been a big fan of speech to text because its way off half the time and takes more time to get something "typed" correctly as opposed to typing it up with your fingers.

    Google have released Voice Actions and an updated Quick Search Box for Froyo devices, detailed here.

    Unfortunately they are only in the US market, and also can have issues depending on the signing configuration on your ROM.

    So I've put some downloads up.

    TRY THIS VERSION FIRST.

    APKs with original signing - DOWNLOAD - MD5: b8eb69533a7c1492e2ca276b3f07a734

    TRY THIS VERSION IF YOU GET 'INSTALLATION UNSUCCESSFUL':

    APKs with test signing - DOWNLOAD - MD5: fa19f4889b408381b7f3a78376709161

    Enjoy, and remember this is for Froyo only!

    Same, I'm really astounded by how well it works. I hope they enable tying it with other apps like twitter or facebook or something.

    It's doing a bad job getting my contact names. just puts it into the message instead of picking who the message is going go. However, the voice recognition is WAY better than it was!
