utter! For Android Now Boasts Completely Offline Voice Recognition

utter! is one of the few fully voice-controlled virtual assistants for Android that is universally accessible from anywhere within the entire OS. This functionality combined with the app’s ability to interpret a broad range of voice commands and perform various actions in response makes it a serious competitor in this arena. If you’re using Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or higher, you will definitely want to check out the latest utter! update. utter! v3.0 claims to have become the first app of its kind to bring complete offline voice recognition support to any device rocking Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or above. That’s right – utter! is now capable of understanding and carrying out your voice commands even if your device is not connected to the internet.


This feature of the app enables you to launch your favorite apps, compose text messages, make phone calls, play around with your device’s system features, set alarms & reminders, manage notes, perform various root-related functions, indulge in friendly chit chat with the app itself, and performing pretty much any supported task that does not involve internet connectivity, without having to rely on an active internet connection for the purpose.

While Google’s main aim behind announcing offline voice recognition support in Android 4.1 was to help users enter texts in apps using voice input while offline, utter! has utilized this feature in the most ideal way a user could wish for, offering a completely offline virtual voice assistant. Should you have any problem learning the exact commands supported by utter!, just navigate to the app’s home screen, or speak ‘float commands list’ in to your device’s microphone after activating utter! from the notification shade.


Having tested the app on Nexus 4, we can verify that it works like a charm. Needless to say, you’ll still require an internet connection for all activities that depend on it such as web-based searching, browsing and social networking. However, for almost all other supported tasks, you can rely on utter!’s offline voice recognition capabilities. In fact the latest update seems to have endowed utter! with even sharper and quicker voice command interpretation skills.

To utilize utter!’s latest features to good effect, you’ll have to make sure that the official Google Search app on your Android device is up-to-date. Also, you might have to install offline voice recognition files by navigating to the Android Voice Search settings screen.


A problem that you might encounter while using the app is its inability to retrieve voice data from Google Voice Search, especially if you’re using English (US) as your default language. To prevent this issue, the developer recommends switching to English (UK), especially until the bug is completely fixed. To make life easier for yourself, we recommend selecting English (UK) from the utter!’s initial setup screen to begin with.

Remember that although utter! is compatible with any device running Android 2.3 Gingerbread or higher, the offline voice voice recognition support in this latest update is meant only for devices running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or higher.
