    Yes i'd like to figure this out too. The OP is asking how to modify the default player. Telling us that such and such player "works for you" isn't really answering the question.

    Mine is doing the same thing, taking me to Slacker (I don't have Pandora.)

    You can't change this, there's a list of 5 approved apps. If you have more than one it asks you, only one it defaults. Rhapsody for example, which has an unlimited catalog, is not on the list.

    Not having the internal player is dumb but would require indexing the names I guess. Not sure ?

    Does anyone know what the other apps are? I know slacker and pandora are two of them.

    And what if the artist mentioned isn't on one of your "channels"?

    OP posted "how can i make it play the music on the default music player i have with the music on my sd card?"

    I guess my music on my computer is on my sd card. so when I use the voice feature with mspot, it pulls the song I say instantly. with pandora or other players, it doesn't play the song that was said. thought it would help!

    The other apps are listed on the page that is linked when you first use the feature.

    It's

    Last.fm
    mSpot
    Pandora
    RDIO
    Spotify

    I have the exact same question as the OP. I do remember seeing the options list as you posted, but your list lacks Slacker. Whenever I search for music, Slacker opens. Is it possible to change it to any of the other ones on your list? I do have both Pandora and Slacker installed.

    Interesting, that list came straight from the video but maybe that guy didn't have Slacker installed.

    There may be a way of clearing data or defaults from the Voice Search app but the easiest way is probably to uninstall the update then install it again. It should ask you the first time you use it. However maybe Slacker (which I do not have installed) is taking over somehow.

    I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling voice search and it never gives you a choice - it just defaults to slacker..

    If you try uninstalling slacker, it says:

    "In order to use this feature download a music application which supports this action from the android market"

    Dumb.

    EDIT: ok, so I updated pandora - that was the problem! voice search wasn't recognizing pandora as a valid app, but now it does. Next I reinstalled slacker, and now it gives me a choice & I can default to one or the other!
