    it wasnt for me in o2 uk and it shouldnt have been for you either
    the reason it was not there is because of compatability issues with the latest maps

    its now back, i dont know how long its been back for though

    its a gimmic, some people like it.
    its what it says on the tin

    I don't see it yet on Canada market. I REALLY like this application but the old APK that I have been using only works 50% of the time.

    Any chance someone can grab the new APK and repost somewhere?

    It's no better than the previous version. It works less than 50% of the time, it just never completes the search or the 'Speak Now' icon never appears. :(

    Found this:
    So how do you get started? According to Google:
    If your phone runs Android 2.1 or later, and you have the Quick Search Box installed, all you have to do is tap the microphone icon to start a voice-powered search. iPhone and BlackBerry users who already have Google Mobile App installed can enable voice search by selecting the new languages from the settings panel within the app.
    If you have Android 1.6 or 2.1 (Donut or Eclair), and you have already installed the Search by voice application, starting later today voice search will return recognition results for French, German, Italian or Spanish if your phone has one of those languages chosen in

    France:
    Had trouble finding it in france using "voice search" then found it using "recherche vocale" so for those of you in Germany,Spain or Italy use the appropriate language ;)

    It seems to clash with the voice commands on Navigation so that neither of them work so I have uninstalled voice search, you have to reboot after.

    Installed it on Galaxo here in Germany. The icons appear, I can start the application, it records what I speak and seems to analyse it, but it never sends the results to the search page, I never get a result.
    Pity, I believe that this is a killer app to use while driving.
    Anyone experienced the same problem?

    I gave it a go before I went to Galaxo and it never worked. Real pisser. The one thing I really miss is voice commands. I cannot believe that my old V3C Razor can do this and the Galaxy can't.

    Back on 1.5, it was working quite well for me. It's great if you don't know the spelling of some words.
