I cannot find the widgets for entering a new task or starting voice mode.

Starting in version 3, these are implemented as shortcuts rather than widgets.  Shortcuts look better on your home screen and use fewer system resources on your device.  Most devices will list shortcuts on the same screen as widgets.  If your device does not do this, then you can access the shortcuts in one of the following ways, depending on your device:
  • Press and hold your finger on a blank area of your home screen / launcher until a context menu appears.  Look for an menu item labeled "Add", "Shortcuts", or "Apps".
  • Press your device's menu key while viewing from the home screen / launcher.  Look for an menu item labeled "Add", "Shortcuts", or "Apps".
