Does the job I use it to launch Google now voice recognition instead of the voice dialler and it works fine, especially since Google recently updated Now to actually use a Bluetooth headset microphone properly. Why android doesn't do this itself is a mystery. The UI is a bit "no frills", but that's no problem since it only needs setting up once then you don't need the UI again. Works even when the phone is locked. Only flaw is that the screen stays on after using it while the phone is locked.
Love it... VERY basic but does the job. I found that in order to call someone using "Ok Google", you need to unlock the phone. However, asking OK Google stuff like "What's the weather?", etc. works flawlessly. Any ideas on how this can be avoided? It would be great if you don't have to do the reach in to make a call. Otherwise this app would deserve all 5 stars! Thanks Author!
Works Well with one problem I'm using a a Nexus 5 with the LG HBS 730 Tone+ bluetooth headset. As per his instructions it works completely fine. The only issue I saw is that it will NOT work with a screen lock enabled. At first it disabled my screen lock and when I disabled and reenabled the screen lock, pressing the call button would make an attempt , but would not launch anything. I would love for that to get fixed. Other than that issue, it works great.
useful, but not consistent using this with my Motorola s305. Being able to launch Google Now voice search from the headset (by setting it to "googlequicksearchbox.VoiceSearchActivity") is really useful. But it doesn't work consistently: sometimes, this app properly activates Google Now voice search. But other times, I just get a beep when I press the button and nothing happens. And after that, I can't activate anything for several minutes. I can't figure out why it works sometimes and not others.
Fantastic Exactly what I was looking for!. I got a new car with Chevy Mylink, and each time I would press the speak button, it would default to phone dialer, which stinks. Because of that, I couldn't do anything other than dial numbers, and even then it was horrible at the task. With this app, I am now able to use Google Voice Search, which allows me to control my music, send texts, and of course dial my phone. Thank you so much, Guardian Bob!!!
Works only once after pairing Was really hoping this app would work so I could use the button on my BT headset to launch Google Now instead of the voice dialer. And it works great... once. After I press the button once to launch Google Now voice search, I can't use it to launch Google Now again until I turn the BT headset off and back on. Bummer. On stock 4.2.1 on a Nexus 4.
This is the official Sony application for Stereo Bluetooth® Headset SBH70.
