On my Droid Razr, pre-JB (the "Leaked OTA JB update"), you could use the Google Search Bar and using Voice Actions say something such as:

CALL <name of business>

Examples:

CALL WALMART

CALL PAPA JOHN'S


I removed the "Google Search" widget that was there under Gingerbread (and present under ICS) because Google Now is just so much better. However, if I bring up Google Search (Google Now) and say "CALL WALMART" it will bring up a listing of Walmart stores in my area, but it won't automatically place the call. How do I get this functionality back or get Google Now to place a call?

Thank you :)

Okay. I found my issue. The problem was my poor choice of an example.

It turns out that the Walmart in my town has three phone listings (main number, pharmacy, and photo center). So, the reason why it wouldn't "auto-dial" the number was because it didn't know which choice to use. If I tried something that it recognized right away, such as "CALL JIFFY LUBE" it then announced "calling" and then auto-dialed the number.

Someone please shoot me now! :D
