    Nobody likes to text and drive.

    If you have the microphone when you type your text, you can use that.

    Google already built this into the OS.

    Some cars have it integrated into their onboard one, you can hit a voice button on my Mazda3 and send voice-to-text SMS.

    But what about on the phone itself?

    But that's not voice to text, it just sends a sound recording.

    And what if I wanted voice to text on other apps like Notepad or whatever?

    Not sure about your phone but mine transcribes it to text and sends. Are you doing it within the Messages SMS app? It should apply to all keyboard applications and works on crap like Facebook that I just tested.

    Are you still rolling an ancient Galaxy S2 or whatever?

    Pretty sure the base keyboard has the microphone transcribe to text, and if not then the Swiftkey one does for sure.
