Offline Recognition finally available!
I write this quick news in order to let everyone aware that, with the latest Google Search app update, Google finally enabled the Offline recognition mode for third-part applications.
To use it, you need a Jelly Bean phone, than just install the latest Google Search update from the Play Store (you can use this url: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox), check that you have the latest version (18.104.22.1685405 or newer), enable it as default voice recognition engine for your phone, install the offline recognition data and enjoy Voice Control in offline mode!
Some actions will still require an internet connection, like the send mail action (for obvious reasons) and the navigate action (that uses online Google Places services to perform address look-ups), and they may crash (I will fix them in the next update), but actions like call, send message, check lost calls, check unread messages and others will work flawlessly!
I would like to give my greatest Thanks to Google, for their decision to give the access to their great offline voice recognition to other Android apps!
