Why doesn't voice search work as advertised?

    I already downloaded the latest voice search app on my nexus one. I can perform some of the voice actions like calling, navigating, maps and internet search, but I can't seem to add alarm, send text message/email, note to self, call businesses or even set alarm. Instead the results give me either google search or voice dialing.

    I live in singapore if that has anything to do with it. Are some of the functions blocked here? Also I noticed in the official guide video the help screen had more options than mine. Is my voice search a more toned down version because I'm in a different region?

    Go into Settings and go to the voice input/output section, then the voice recognizer menu. Make sure the language is English (US). I had the same problem as British English (or any other language) doesn't support the new commands yet.

    Ah got it, thanks! Are you able to set alarm by voice? I can't seem to do that.
