    If you pause for about three seconds while talking, Google Voice Recognition assumes you're done.

    The problem is, when I'm talking to my phone (and perhaps driving my car at the same time) , I often pause for 5 or more seconds to think in mid-sentence..

    I know I could try to train myself to do something differently, but I'd rather train Google to do it my way....

    Is there any way to adjust that timeout period to 10 or 15 seconds?

    Hello, Did you ever get an answer to your question. I am having the same problem and would love to increase the pause time or use an alternative voice input method. Thank you!

    Hi swtyndall, and welcome to Android Forums :)

    I know it's not the answer you were hoping for, but I don't believe that there's any way for a user to change that timeout. Even other apps (such as the AutoVoice plugin for Tasker) that use the Google voice recognition API are unable to change that core functionality.

    I have had the exact same problem on my tablet. Occasionally, it just thinks I've finished whilst I'm in the middle of talking! :mad:
    I'd have to say that the recording duration is the only problem with Google voice search.

    I'm setting up a google home for my dad who is older and has dementia, so he could definitely use this! Plus, I'm interested in hacking this device to get it to do some cool stuff myself :^)

    In software, where there's a will...

    In fact..there's a way..not quitely as it sounds but yes..my mom's and also best friend's Google actually waits way longer than yours and mine..all you have to do is update to that particular version..I'll get back with that version..it might work.

    Awesome. Thanks for commenting. I'd love to find a dev who could dive in and see where this happens in the code so someone could make a stand-alone app or code adjusting hack to tune this.

    Would love for this to be adjustable for my disabled son! Using this with other technology will make his life more independent!
