Re: Xperia Z3 voice dialing

The app responsible for voice dialing is Google Now, it comes pre-installed on your mobile. You can activate it by hitting the call button in your car, or saying "OK Google". To make sure that this option is activated do the following:

 

Go to you App drawer and open "Google Settings -> Search & Now -> Voice -> Hands-free -> Allow requests with device locked for bluetooth devices

Go back, open "OK Google detection" and activate "From any screen"

Re: Xperia Z3 voice dialing

I've managed to get the voice dialer to work but if I make any changes to my contacts, the voice dialer doesn't use the changes.  It keeps defaulting to whatever was there before.  I've tried syncing with Outlook Exchange -- where the contacts reside.  I've tried syncing with Google.  Nothing seems to work and it's driving me mad.
