Default Google voice

I really need some help with this. I'm partially sighted and so when I saw a video of the truesmart using google voice to search for things I knew this would be the smartwatch for me.

The problem is when I use it it only opens the browser. It doesn't actually search. Also, when I do simple tasks like "calculator" it just opens the browser.

What am I doing wrong?

It's not Google Voice that you are needing. You need to install Google Search. When you do... open it and it will have you sign in. Install the widget on your home screen and you can you voice to activate it and do searches.

The watch has a problem reading the answers though.... as is documented in another couple of threads... unfortunately.

Hope that helps.

Omate TRUESMART that FINALLY showed up! Now. If all the functionality that was promised would show up... not holding my breath.

Thanks for your reply.

I tried that dragon search app that Omate mentioned was coming out on the Omate but it doesn't work. I then tried Utter and that works brilliantly.

Default Speaktoit Assistant

I loaded up Speaktoit Assistant and worked ok, but too much of a delay for a reply then Google Search. I can live without the witty interaction I guess?
