Better integration with Android's Voice Actions?

chris.waters Pro says:

It's great to see that RTM now integrates with Siri. Are there any plans for better integration with Android's Voice Actions? I'd like to be able to utilize the Voice Actions feature and then somehow say "Meet with accountant ^3/15 #Finances" and then have it create that task, for that date, in that list.

True, I can go to the Add Task textbox and then enter text via speech by pressing the microphone icon; e.g., "Meet with accountant". It would be great to be able to do this without having to first launch RTM. In any case, I haven't figured out how, via speech, to specify a date (other than, say, "tomorrow") nor how to specify a list.

Hi chris.waters,
We don't currently have any announcements about further voice integration on Android devices. However, you may be able to use the Smart Bar widget to add tasks from your home screen by voice without opening the app.

To specify dates, include the date after the task name. The date will be parsed just as if you'd typed it. For example, you could say:

New Task March 15

This will create a task called "New Task" due on March 15. You can find some acceptable date and time formats here.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for the response. How can I specify that a task should be added to a list (e.g., "Home", "Research", "Read", etc.)?

chris.waters,
You can specify the list like so: #Finances, however I don't know of a way to use Android Voice Actions to elicit that response, sorry! You may need to tweak it manually by typing.

OK. Thanks for confirming that. :(
