Hi everyone,

I have an issue with Autovoice Continuous vocal recognition (a great tasker plugin, which basically makes your phone listening to you at all time - or at the times you want if you're concerned about battery usage) since I updated to KitKat a few days ago.
I finally got it to work (activating Google Voice Search in Keyboard & Language settings, which took me almost one hour to find out!) but now, when Autovoice continous is enabled, I hear the google voice search beep "notification" every 5 seconds... Which is a bit annoying

Just wondering if anyone using autovoice has had the same issue (and better, how to solve it!)

Thanks

I have/had the same issue and it took me some time to dig it down.

On my Note 10.1 2014 LTE it is caused by the latest update of Google search which I installed yesterday via PlayStore.

After reverting that (luckily my device is rooted and I use Titanium backup), the beep is gone.

So somehow, Google has introduced that and AutoVoice can (yet) not disable it.

Yes, solved it by reverting to an older version of google search as well and there is no other way around yet.
The problem is that in the latest versions of GS, the "beep" notification sound is pushed through the media sound channel instead of the notification one (which autovoice is muting and unmuting, since continuous mode is basically just a voice search triggered every 5 seconds).

I have the same problem. Currently, there is no other solution then reverting google search to previous version. Hopefully next autovoice update will solve this issue.

There is already an update.

Unfortunately, the change of google in the search function (together with the update) causes parallel running apps using the speakers to be muted every 5 secs for a moment. That is anoying (eg. Internet radio).
