I haven't seen anyone mention it.

I can confirm that on my Nexus One, running Androic v2.2 FRF50 pre-release, full hands-free dialing is supported and works really well.

I've got round to trying it out last week and I'm very happy with it.

Just waiting for the final drop of Android v2.2 now.....though it may be a close thing with CyanogenMod v6 which is about to be released as a test version for Nexus One and the "32B phones (G1 and Magic 32b)....based on the Android v2.2 source code released last week.

These guys don't wait around......

'Full' in what sense? Compared to 'not full'?

I use voice dialling on my Nokia 5800. I can trigger it from the button on my bluetooth handsfree, and it recognises any name in my contacts or apps with having to pre-record voice tags or analyse anything in the cloud. Is that what you mean?

Interested because my Samsung Galaxy S is on order...

n4: 'Full' in what sense? Compared to 'not full'?



To initiate a call, prior to Android v2.2, you had to start Voice Dialing by hand in order to give it a voice instruction. That meant picking up the phone, perhaps unlocking the screen and then touching the Voice Dialing app. In NZ, the Voice Dialing app was typically only available on rooted phones running alternate ROMs or on Android phones that were parallel imported.

Voice Dialing support was not included on the HTC Magic from Vodafone.

In Android v2.2 you just touch your bluetooth ear piece and the phone invites you to speak. Yes, that is how phones have been doing it for years....and now Android does it that way to. An obvious gap is now closed on Android v2.2.

I believe Samsung have added bluetooth voice calling to the Galaxy S as an extra above and beyond usual 2.1 limitations.

Will try it out on mine and see!

Ah thats good to hear. Does it require access to the 'cloud' ie a good data connection, or is it running SW on the phone? To do the voice recognition?

About to team a Blueant S4 with N1 on Froyo, the ultimate hands-free, all voice controlled and speaks your incoming txts, cool!




 I'm supposed to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

I think it could be improved.  What happens is as the OP notes, you press the button on your BT headset and it invites you to speak. But it actually brings up the Voice Dialling application which was always there. I have no idea where the voice recognition takes place - in the phone or in the cloud but for me it always brings up a number of choices. So I have to press the one I want.

I much preferred the systems where you recorded a name against number and the phone matched that. At least the recognition was likely to be more accurate (it just has to match the audio signals) and you didn't need to see the phone at all.

Also on my BT handsfree, pressing the call button twice always did a last number redial but with the handsfree on the N1, it always brings up the Voice Dialer.

I do have names against each...and if I ask for "Call John Home" it will dial the home number I have set for John.

I don't need to touch anything.

On the Nokia 5800, it confirms by reading back to you what it thinks you want (using text to speech) so no need to touch anything unless it got it wrong. Preferable to pre-recording because you can call any contact, even one you only created yesterday, without having to record a tag for it.

Pressing twice does last number redial as well, not that I use that often.
