Love the voice commands, but for me 'listen to [[blah blah]]' only ever pulls up the youtube app & searches for whatever [[blah blah]] is. I've got the amazon mp3 app installed (as well as UberMusic) and would like for one of those two to come up instead.

I tried going into Menu > Manage Apps > Youtube & hit the 'clear defaults' button to see if I would get prompted to choose a program to respond to 'listen to' commands, but there was no prompt--I still went right to youtube.

This is a t-mobile vibrant running bionix 1.2.1 (an android 2.2 version).

Try using the apps suggested here and configure them to launch the program of choice.

Thanks much for the response. I was really looking for something that tied in w/the native voice actions though. I wound up setting up google music & that (sort of) responds to "listen to". (It opens up to search results for [[blah blah]].) – Roy Pardee Nov 30 '11 at 18:47

The PowerAmp app will respond to "Listen to..." commands. It's a good music player if you are willing to pay about $5, but it does have a free trial.

Thanks for the response. I wound up switching to google music, but maybe one of my more-preferred apps will get updated to respond to that voice action someday. – Roy Pardee Nov 30 '11 at 18:48
