Searching using the Voice Control app

When you say your search terms, the Voice Control app automatically searches your BlackBerry device first. To search the Internet before searching your device, specify that you want to search the Internet when you say your search terms. For example, "Search the Internet for electric cars."

To help improve your search results, be as specific as possible with your search terms. For example, "Search contacts for Megan Ball," "Search for messages from Matthew," or "Search for notes containing the word dogs."
