Can anyone recommend a voice-activated dialer for Android that does not upload all your contacts to an external server?

I want to be able to simple say "Call electrician" and have it call my electrician, without having to send a list of all my contacts to some external (remote) server.

Prefer gratis, but any cost is fine.

  • What about "voice recognition data" being uploaded? Pure on-device voice recognition apps are still rare (though I wonder why, as even my old Nokia E61 was capable of "voice dialing" – and my old i386 with OS/2 of dictation and more). Google usually does that online, and most "alternative assistants" as well. – Izzy Aug 1 '17 at 16:54
  • @Izzy Do you know of any that are purely offline ("on-device")? – RockPaperLz- Mask it or Casket Aug 2 '17 at 5:37
  • Not by own experience. Dragon Assistant is said to have that capability, and utter! – both apps haven't been updated for at least 2 resp. 3 years. – Izzy Aug 2 '17 at 6:27
  • Thanks. I tried Dragon in the past, and I can't remember why I uninstalled it (might have been a TOS issue). IIRC, I also tried utter! and uninstalled it as well. It's odd that these applications don't get updated, as there is probably significant demand. – RockPaperLz- Mask it or Casket Aug 2 '17 at 16:37

    Unfortunately not. But I've not actively checked, admittedly. – Izzy Dec 5 '19 at 8:02
