The Samsung Galaxy S4 was presented two weeks ago, but its arrival on the market has not yet occurred. However, one of the applications with which it will arrive, S Voice, is now available to download on any Android device, although it does not work perfectly on all. It is the new version of the rival Siri developed by Samsung.
S Voice It comes in the form of an Android application, so a priori it can be installed on any device, since it is nothing more than an .apk file. In fact, it does not give any problem when installing, and once we have managed to install it, we can start the application. We can even talk to the application and activate the system. However, it seems that what is not working in some cases is the connection to the Samsung server, which prevents our message from being sent and a response from being received.
However, devices with Android operating system customized by Samsung seem to have no problems, as quoted directly in SamMobile, they want to have also shared the installation file of the application S Voice. Therefore, if you have a Samsung, you can install the application and start using it, since most likely you will not have problems of any kind. If you do not have a Samsung, you can try the application, since it seems that in the Nexus it also works, and it would not be strange if they were not the only ones.
In any case, it helps us to see what the new system will be like. It still does not seem too useful, but it will surely be used by those who often resort to giving voice commands to the device. The conversion of the devices into voice assistants promised a lot with Apple’s Siri, but it seems not quite convincing, due to the obvious limitations it has. Be that as it may, the new S Voice it is a step forward in this area, and proof that Samsung is not willing to stop progressing and improving its devices.
