    Voice Activated Dialing

    I can't seem to get my voice activated dialing to work. I launch the the voice recognition (either by mic or long press magnifying glass) and speak "call home" it does a google search on call home? Home is a contact. I speak "call amy rice" it does a google search on call amy rice? Amy Rice is a contact. It doesnt even launch anything to do with the phone? What am i doing wrong or whats up?

    I am having the same issue. The only voice dialer that seems to work reliably is the voice dialer app that came preloaded. Any other voice commands launch in a browser.

    I just long press the magnifying glass in the bottom right of the screen and say "call mom home" and it opens a browser with all the wonderful call mom home search results that you get when you enter the same in google. I have tried using the word dial as well.

    Go to Settings --> Search
    You can modify what is searched for.
    I hope I am understanding the issue at hand correctly.

    Your using the wrong app for voice dialing. I was doing the same thing, then noticed there is an app in the Applications folder called Voice Dialer. This app does the voice phone calling.

    I guess either I'm lucky or there's some other difference. Note that I've not changed any of the search settings from whatever their default values are. If I:

    • Touch the microphone on the home screen
    • Hold the phone next to my mouth
    • Say "Call Marcia" (my wife's name)


    It places a call to my wife.

    I just tried it and that's exactly what it did.

    Here is a link to a video on setting the Google voice search function, should be able to bring up your contacts once you set it.

    Pick the Google search by voice video

    I dont think you are understanding. My selected searchable items are Browser, apps, contacts & music, and all it searches is the browser. Even if I am in the phone app and long press the magnifying glass all it ever searches is via the browser. I can use the voice dialer just fine, but I would think the main search glass would pick up on the keywords like CALL, DIAL, & NAVIGATE and search accordingly. Some people this seems to be working just fine for, and others not so much.
