Android 2.3.6 is being sent out to the Google Nexus S and packs voice search fix
Google Nexus S handset owners are being treated to a brand new update that finally addresses some of the annoying problems that some people are seeing with Voice Search randomly acting up. Actually, affected owners say that Google Voice Search would inexplicably open and close very fast – thus, requiring them to lock their phone to stop it.

Well folks, Google is pushing out Android 2.3.6 to the Nexus S as we speak, but more importantly, it squashes that one specific annoying bug. Additionally, the software update packs along a few other security patches that should iron out most of its kinks. Besides those two items, Google doesn’t specify if there are anything else new included with it.

Naturally, don’t be alarmed if you don’t see the update hitting your smartphone right now seeing that it’s being rolled out over the course of the next few days. But if you’re impatient, you can also attempt initiating the process manually by checking for updates under the Android settings menu.
