Android phones have trouble dialing 911 (or 999) and Lenovo is teaming up with Disney to send you on Jedi Adventures! All on this week's show!
Apple's AI-powered assistant as well as Samsung's have lost users from May of last year to this May. Google, Microsoft and Hound have made some gains.
Samsung's latest acquisition likely targets the progress of its Bixby assistant and an AI-powered smart speaker, which need all the help they can get.
Bixby is supposed to head into the Galaxy S8 in April, but with S Voice being a critical failure, we have to wonder how much there is to the "base".
Viv, an artificial intelligence firm founded by one of Siri's creators, was acquired by Samsung this year and is being put to full use for next year.
You can get a 4K display and two rear cameras on your next Galaxy S8, but you're going to have to pay dearly for it, just as with the iPhone 7 Plus.
As popular and successful as Samsung may be, the company has taken the spotlight over the last couple of years for ripping-off a lot of companies in their products, the most notorious being Apple. We’ve seen various lawsuits flying around between these two companies, precisely because of how the Galaxy line-up follows on the iPhone’s footsteps, and yet, it seems that Samsung hasn’t had enough.
SamMobile has just leaked a screenshot of how S Voice will look on the future Samsung UI, and you guessed it, just like S Voice looked like Siri in its inception, this [...]
Android's voice interface is great, but it lacks any of the warmth or personality of Apple's Siri. Read on to see why I think this is a real handicap for Google Now in the battle for smartphone voice control.
Recently I was asked the question, "what would happen if you couldn't use your keyboard at all? What if you had to use voice input for everything?" That sounded like a question worth answering, not to mention a fun way to embarrass myself in public. So I decided to give it a go.
Voice input is the victimless crime of the wireless world; it doesn't hurt anyone, it doesn't irreparably impair the usefulness of devices, and it provides a feature that some people find useful. Yet it gets hate from a lot of corners of the internet calling it a useless gimmick.
There’s no denying that the definition of what a smartphone is has shifted quite a few times in less than a decade. At first it was a phone with PIM functionality, later a PDA that had phone functionality, later a phone that was smart enough to handle anything developers could throw at it, and as of a few months ago, it’s all about a phone that talks to you. I know many of you started reading this thinking that Voice Control is the big thing now, but as we’ve been going through the different alternatives in the market lately, it’s clear that the technology is [...]
Our own Jaime Rivera has already whipped up a full preview of iOS 6, but I thought I'd take a ground-level look at just one of its features- specifically, how Siri feels on a tablet. Siri bursts onto the scene in iOS 6 with new features and a new format for the big screen of the iPad, so it's time to take a look at what she offers this time around. Click the video below for some of the most scintillating human-to-robot-to-human conversation this side of Anakin Skywalker's droid lab.
Until a few days ago, I'd never used one of these latest-generation voice command applications. S Voice has been my only exposure to this brave new world of vocally-powered control. While I was mildly impressed at how many corners of the phone could feel the warm touch of S Voice, I didn't feel a compelling need to explore many of them. And when I did, the lackluster performance of the app reminded me why I just stick to tapping and swiping most of the time.
