Voice Search use in Your Android Application

Google Voice Search or Search by Voice is a Google product that allows users to use Google Search by speaking on a mobile phone or computer, i.e. have the device search for data upon entering information on what to search into the device by speaking.

Here i have created one demo to get input without typing and that is done by Google Voice Search Feature.

Google Voice Search in all Devices

Let's see how to get input from user without typing:

Call the following code while click on button or as you want:

/* Call Activity for Mic */
Intent intent = new Intent(RecognizerIntent.ACTION_RECOGNIZE_SPEECH);

intent.putExtra(RecognizerIntent.EXTRA_LANGUAGE_MODEL, "en-US");

try {
startActivityForResult(intent, 1);
} catch (ActivityNotFoundException a) {
Toast t = Toast.makeText(context, "Oops! Your device doesn't support Speech to Text",Toast.LENGTH_SHORT);

Now get the result using onActivityResult():

public void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);

switch (requestCode) {
case 1: {
if (resultCode == Activity.RESULT_OK && null != data) {


ArrayList<String> text = data.getStringArrayListExtra(RecognizerIntent.EXTRA_RESULTS);

searchView.setQuery(text.get(0), true);
