    That's Android Voice Actions.

    Google Voice is a VoIP service that effectively allows you to aggregate all of your telephone numbers under a single number that never changes, so if you move or change home/cell provider without porting your old numbers, you can simply update GV with your new number(s).

    When someone calls your GV number, all configured phones ring simultaneously. Answer on one of those phones, you're now connected to the caller and the rest stop ringing.

    GV also includes a great voice mail service that provides speech to text conversion and will email you the text.

    I used it heavily for a number of years as a consultant that spent a lot of time traveling. I could add a desk phone at a customer location to the GV ring list and receive calls even when I had crappy cell coverage. It also allowed me to effectively dial out even when non-8xx outbound calls were restricted; dial the call through the GV web UI and it would first ring my desk phone, then when I picked up it would connect me to the number I dialed.

    At the moment GV is free for domestic use. Overseas calls made through it are not free, but very cheap.

    Google Android is today one of the most widespread mobile operating systems among users. It can be found on cell phones and tablet PC devices, too. These mobile devices are used not only for the traditional telephoning purposes nowadays but all are capable of Internet connection and some of them also have mobile Internet subscription.

    Android mobile devices have support for the Adobe Air environment that can be used for building VoIP client applications with Ozeki VoIP SIP SDK. These solutions can be made as easily as any other desktop applications, you only need to use a slightly different programming environment and tools.
    With Ozeki VoIP SIP SDK and Adobe Flash Builder you can create your own Android application with standard programming techniques. You can upload these applications onto your smart phone or tablet and use them for communication.

    I have found really useful Android VoIP Client Solutions. Here is a little help that was necessary for my project as well:
    When creating a mobile application, you need to use the File->New->Flex Mobile Project option and set the project name, the target platform (Android, iPhone or BlackBerry)
    The following program code shows how you can handle the physical buttons of a mobile device. These instructions should be placed in the creationComplete handler of the application.
    1. if(Capabilities.cpuArchitecture=="ARM")
    2. {
    3. NativeApplication.nativeApplication.addEventListener(Event.ACTIVATE, handleActivate, false, 0, true);
    4. NativeApplication.nativeApplication.addEventListener(Event.DEACTIVATE, handleDeactivate, false, 0, true);
    5. NativeApplication.nativeApplication.addEventListener(KeyboardEvent.KEY_DOWN, handleKeys, false, 0, true);
    6. }

    If you require more help for your project then you may visit Ozeki C# VoIP SDK - A SIP SDK for software developers.

    Regards,
    Niko

    As the original poster, I am at fault.
    I didn't subject it right.
    I actually meant something along the lines of 'what do you command your phone to do?'.
    Google Voice, although I don't use it, is a whole nother thing.

    GOOGLE VOICE explained HERE
    Google Voice gives you one number for all your phones -- a phone number that is tied to you, not to a device or a location. Use Google Voice to simplify the way you use phones, make using voicemail as easy as email, customize your callers' experience, and more.

    Google Voice isn't a phone service, but it lets you manage all of your phones. Google Voice works with mobile phones, desk phones, work phones, and VoIP lines. There's nothing to download, upload, or install, and you don't have to make or take calls using a computer.

    Google Voice will let you define which phones ring, based on who's calling, and even let you ListenInTM on voicemail before answering the call. We use smart technology to route your calls. So, if you're already on a Google Voice call, we'll recognize it and use call waiting to reach you on the phone you're on.

    GOOGLE VOICE ACTIONS explained HERE
    Control your Android phone just by speaking using Voice Actions.

    On every smartphone from my original RAZR to Moto Q to Ozone to Trophy...till this RAZR I have used voice actions to call favorites. I don't use it on this phone because of the Moto favorites widget...it is two taps to call my favorite using the widget alternately it requires two quick taps on home icon to be use voice action...then I still have to say what I want.

    Just an observation the extra step kills it for me. Also on WP7 Trophy..it was one tap then you instantly got the nice lady asking "say a command"...on RAZR I usually have to wait a few secs or so to speak while the program loads.

    I spoke to other phones way more than I do this one.

    I do use Google voice for voice mail. I can check my voice mail from my tablet or pc with my cell nowhere near. Or if I have no cell phone service, my phone or tablet can get the voice mail over wifi. Cool feature.
