Google Voice Search

I, along with mostly every other Wildfire user, was dismayed when Google Voice Search stopped working. A very neat way of navigating your smartphone, voice search seemed to fail when HTC released their Froyo 2.2 update for the Wildfire. Not only did Google Voice Search stop functioning, it also disappeared from Google Android Market. Lots of the best apps now require voice recognition to get the most from them, so I also found myself forced to uninstall apps I had previously enjoyed that were now useless. Now and again, I did checks to see if I could once again install one of my favourite features back onto my Wildfire and also looked for workarounds, but found none that worked. Sick of my smartphone getting less smart by the day, I was one unhappy android owner!


Voila! It's back on HTC Wildfire, as good as it ever was. Thank you Google, thank you HTC, thank you to whoever or whatever fixed the bugs and things. I am no longer jealous of my HTC Desire owning friends. Not only is it back, it also seems to understand my accent better this time around, more clever than most of the UK then (honestly, you would think I was from Mars, not Stoke-on-Trent). Anyway, get yourself the download below, I have a few apps to reinstall...

Voice Search Tip

When using android Google Voice Search in the UK, to get the most benefit you must change the voice setting from English (UK) to English (Generic) or English (US). If you do not do this you will find the Google search functions stunted ie: you will not be able to send texts or emails directly using voice commands.

To change voice setting; 

  • Open Voice Search
  • Press - menu
  • Tap - Settings
  • Tap - Language
  • Choose English (Generic) or English (US)
