Google Voice Actions / updated Quick Search Box APKs (original / testsigned)

Recommended Posts

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. :D

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!

P

Update: If you need ChromeToPhone too for whatever reason, i've uploaded it here.

Hmm wierd neither of the files works on MCR r5 release of Froyo rom. Not that it matter that much to me, just thought I´d report back. Device is HTC Desire.

Both work fine for me on R5 (Desire). Unzipped onto SD and selected with Astro which opened App Manager.

Now I just need to find out what Voice Actions does! :D

Thanks Paul

EDIT: installed the top Original Signing ones

Does not seem to work for me, i say listen to Elton John as an example or send text to Stuart and it fires up the google search page on the web. Navigate, map, call seems to work most of the time Any ideas please?

I'm in the uk and show in the market, tried to download and it failed, tried the files in OP and failed.

BUT...... If you uninstall "Google search" and "google voice search" first, using titanium backup or adb, then REBOOT!! and if you don't it doesn't work. Then install from market. Worked perfectly for me on my Hero with a custom ROM.

Is the new search app bound to your hardware search button too?

looks like it.

With the voice search, I can't get it to work with the "listen to", "send text to" and a few others, yet "navigate to" and call .... works!!!! Strange.

EDIT: fixed,

You need to set the Voice Recognizer language to US English.

Home -> Menu -> Settings -> Voice input & output -> Voice recognizer settings -> Language -> English (US)

It won't work on other languages like English (UK).

Hmm, on my Nexus One having followed your instructions above, I have lost the bindings. Thanks for helping me to get the voice search to work properly though, was really annoying me.

Installed fine using the first download link, however - I find it really inaccurate, and my text/voice settings are set to English UK.

"Send text to" never works for me. Anyone else finding the same?

Installed the signed apks on my Hero, works fine except pressing the hardware search button no longer does anything (long press does voice search though)... Any way to fix this?

Just noticed that as well. Tapping on the Search hardware button no longer works.

Otherwise, the app works pretty well :D
