I don't know whether this version will work in all phones are not.
Thanks for "breakerfall" for providing the official google blog post regarding voice search.

Looks like it's only supported for the 8110, 8120 and US version of 8130. That's probably why some of the phones don't come up with the version with voice search.

Yahoo has had this for about 3 months - wasn't too bad when I tested it on my Curve.

Works excellent on my 8700c AT&T. I'm pretty impressed. Searches take a few seconds. Tried 2 different voices (mine and my son's). I can't believe a beta app actually works.
OS 4.2.1.114

Hi betterlate1,

It's not working on my pearl 8110. Do we need to do any permission changes ?
what are the steps you followed to make it work ?
Thanks

I emailed nivas post of the .jad file to myself. Clicked on the link in the email. Installed the app. It did confirm that 2.2.0 was installed and asked if I wanted to replace with 2.2.1. Once installed


Then held the left side button (the one I normally use to change profiles) spoke the word TARGET into my phone and released the button


Then a few seconds later this popped up


I am however running OS 4.2 not 4.5

OK, I have tried both the new Google Maps with Voice Search v2.2.1 and the new Windows Live Search Beta. Google Maps is much faster and seems (IMO) a lot lighter weight. Maybe my imagination but Live Search seems to be bogging down as expected from any Microsoft application...way too much code and functionality to be practical. Google Maps Voice Search is almost instant on my uncluttered 8700c and Live Search is, well...still searching. I highly recommend Google Maps with Voice 2.2.1

Maybe you want to move this post to the reviews forum?

Installed on my 8330 but nothing happens when side key pressed. Text search seems pretty fast.

Second, the feature is currently only supported on 8110, 8120 and 8130 BlackBerry Pearl models in the US. Third, we'd love to get your feedback on it -- feel free to leave your comments below.
When I went looking in the help section, google said it was only for the 8120 and 8130. No 8110.

It doesn't work here. But my left convenience key is my Voice Dial shortcut and that is all that comes up.

Evidently OS 4.2 ONLY. Everyone with newer OS has problems. I am still trying it out and it is still working flawlessly. Really unusual for me.

With the help of the link (above), it works fine on my 8310 with AT&T. Pretty slick...

If you download the .jad file, you have to jump through some hoops to create the .alx and .cod files to be able to load it with the desktop manager's app loader. There's a thread here somewhere about converting the .jad files to the .alx and .cod files... but never tried it.

I had success using my BB to email myself the link in post #23. It is a jad file but I'm sure someone could convert it to an alx/cod. But, you will need a data plan to use it anyway so you might as well do it all from the BB.

PS: Thanks nivas, this app is very COOL! Your good luck seems to be my good fortune.

Then try Live Search Beta. It may work better for you. I am assuming that it is designed for newer OS and devices. It is also free and also has voice search capabilities.
