    Just curious if this is somthing apple could add to the 2nd gen in a software update, or if the hardware just doesnt support it.

    i think it can......since the 2G has speakers, all you need is the update for voice control, and the microphone headphones but who knows if apple will ever create an update for voice control for 2G in 3.2 or 3.3 iphone OS.

    i hardly doubt it....btw:rolleyes:

    What do the speakers have to do with it? You need a microphone and since the iPod touch 1G, 2G or 3G does not have one, no, the hardware is not there.

    But if you have the headset with the microphones, then it will work on the 3G.

    Right, but the OP never specified headphones or not. So, obviously the first impression is no. But I could be wrong:)

    Well, I said something correct, whereas you said something about speakers, which aren't related to Voice Control. But I guess some hackers are trying to port it like they did with the iPhone 3G.

    The 2G iPod touch doesn't support Voice Control.

    I don't think the 2nd gen supports it. Voice control was introduced with the 3GS, so wouldn't the voice control be hardware based?

    The only keynote showing voice control on an iPod touch was this year's with the Late 2009 iPod touch.

    I think VoiceControl is software dependent, not hardware dependent, I could be wrong. I reckon they just don't put VC on the 2nd gen because they want you to buy the 3rd gen.

    Kind Regards

    Why does not one understand? How does voice command work? You need to speak something and then have the device do it. How does the device now what you are speaking? Through a microphone. The only way it will happen is through using the microphone in the headphones of the 32GB or 64GB iPod touch 3rd Gen. Then a software update would be needed to support voice control.
