    When using Google now, a voice command truncates at approximately 4 words. It does not allow me to ask the entire question. The instructions for voice commands, indicates that long questions can be asked. Is there a way to lengthen voice commands in Google now to permit longer expressions? Thanks

    Think you just need to speak faster with no pauses, old boy.

    I just used OK Google and said...

    "Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines or How I Flew from London to Paris in 25 hours 11 minutes"

    ... and it worked perfectly!

    Here's another film title for you to try...

    "Night Of The Day Of The Dawn Of The Son Of The Bride Of The Return Of The Revenge Of The Terror Of The Attack Of The Evil, Mutant, Hellbound, Flesh-Eating, Crawling, Alien, Zombified, Subhumanoid Living Dead — Part 5"

    To Ironass : It must be my smartphone. Speaking faster was no help. People tell me all the time that I talk too fast, but thanks for the suggestion.

    I just discovered why I've been having a problem with my voice commands being truncated. If I hit the microphone in the Google search bar, my voice commands get truncated after about 4 words. If I use the microphone on the Google Now page, the problem goes away. Why is that, and is there a setting somewhere that can be tweaked to enable voice commands in the search bar to behave like the one in Google now? I hope this post makes sense. Thanks.

    I reposted a comment on this subject. Since the post was several days later, and perhaps it was missed. Please look at the post under the same name. Thanks.

    It's easiest on the main desktop website. Go to the thread, copy the URL, then paste the URL in your post.

    I know you are very busy, but I if you remember from previous posts, I don't have access to a laptop, so your instructions can't be followed. Thanks anyway.

    I'm having difficulty with a maximum number of words I can use with voice commands. Sometimes it cuts off with just four words. Is OK Google better than using the microphone? Thanks.

    It's pretty much the same thing. It has to do with your microphone's sensitivity and the background noise. Have you tried using it with a wired headset?

    No I haven't. I seem to feel that the first word spoken in the command has an effect on how long the command can be. Your thoughts?

    I used to have S Voice on my smartphone. I don't know what happened but it's not there now. I'm looking for it because the microphone is not working properly. Help. Thanks.
