LG unveils 'Quick Voice' in Korea to take on Siri and S-Voice

With Apple having Siri and Samsung having S-Voice, we were kind of wondering if any other other manufacturers were going to join this voice driven assistant party. As it turns out, LG is willing to take a run at it having now unveiled Quick Voice as they're calling it in Korea. LG's Quick Voice (from what we can tell so far) will provide you with all that you would expect from a voice recognition system. Meaning it can launch searches, schedule appointments, bring up apps, make calls and even tell you what the date is. Right now, LG has noted it will be coming to their Optimus line of devices by end of June through July through a software update. At this time, there is no mention of a U.S. release date but it seems likely that LG would want to roll it out in as many places as possible eventually.

  • I can't say I blame the manufacturers for taking on siri, but I have a feeling there's going to be a lot of half ass efforts instead of one or even two good options.
  • I'm glad HTC didn't follow suite because they all suck.
  • Why do the manufacturers want to make their own voice control software? Would it not be better to have them all work with Google and come out with one unified app to take on Siri (especially since Google has such high hopes for their version)? This will only fragment the market more and give the Apple fans something else to latch on to and point and laugh at.
  • Someone else sees the phallus in that pic right?
  • The Geeks among us, NO.........
    But, trust you to notice, lol
