    Is there a voice command (or new voice app) that will play a music track from your own library?

    Apparently you can use the voice command Play <playlist name>. What if I want to say Play <track name>... ?

    I don't want to be bothered with Pandora or Last.fm or any of those. I have a ton of music on my phone now. It seems to understand Play <track name> but tries to open one of the above-mentioned services. Same deal with Listen to <track name>.

    The reason I want this is for the CarDock app... so maybe there's a better car app, but it seems like it would still interact with the stock Google voice search, no?

    Oh - and it would be great if it didn't pop up a confirmation screen... just play the darn song!

    At the moment, Voice Actions only supports cloud/searchable music services.

    According to this thread, they are working on getting it to support the native music app. You have to scroll down a bit in the thread as it discusses a couple different issues.

    DenverRalphy,

    Thanks for pointing me to that thread. I tried searching before I posted but came up with way too many results to go through them.

    This helps.
