I totally love my Samsung Galaxy S2, but I truly and honestly hate the freaking “Voice command” app that pops up every time I press the Home button.
Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) gives the lovely option to disable built in software, well, most of it. Not Voice command though.
After a long time of frustration I finally found a good solution at kwatog.wordpress.com
Most of the times, you need to dig deep into the google search results to find what you’re looking for. And in the case of disabling VLingo Voice Command on Samsung Galaxy SII, Google found a post about it in androidforums. The procedure is too damn simple anyone could have simply ignored it. Luckily, there are helpful souls who shares what they find out to free us from the chainballs of VLingo without rooting your beloved device.
Here are the steps:
1. Install and Activate Go Launcher EX from Google Play. It’s free!
2. Open the app drawer.
3. Press and hold on the blue Voice Command icon until it starts shaking.
4. Click on the X button and choose uninstall. Follow the instructions.
5. Optionally, you can uninstall Go Launcher EX.
That’s it. It’s that damn simple.
It doesn’t work on all Android versions, but it worked on my Android 4.0.3
