Vlingo for Android has been updated today – they’re calling it “Oyster” and it adds even more integration with some of Android’s top applications. Speaking queries like “Find hotels for next Friday in San Francisco” will take you into Kayak to give you a listing of – you guessed it – Hotels in San Francisco on December 24th. Likewise, “Where is Tangled in 3D playing” will bring up local showtimes and locations for Tangled 3D. OpenTable integration has also been added. Finally, the ActionBar is like an expanded Google Search where Vlingo will show you their recommended results alongside Google’s or anyone else’s. Typing “find Italian” will bring up a list of Italian restaurants near you, and that’s where OpenTable comes in: you can book reservations right there. All this and more can be found in the Android market now. [via Androinica]
