LG Announces “Quick Voice” in Korea, Their Answer to Siri and S-Voice

With voice command assistants being all the rave these days, LG just couldn’t resist and decided to join in on all the fun. To attempt to stay on pace with Samsung, LG released their voice recognition software dubbed as “Quick Voice”. There’s nothing really new here if you’re already familiar with the Galaxy SIII’s S-Voice software and the iPhone 4S’s Siri. It’s a voice activated software that will enable the user to ask for various questions such as what the weather is and will assist you in setting up certain tasks such as setting up an alarm or calendar events. Quick Voice will launch “soon” on some of their current smartphones in Asia such as the Vu and LTE II. So far, no word yet on whether it will appear on some of their American handsets such as the Optimus 3D and LG Thrill 4G.

I’ve never really cared too much for these types of dedicated voice recognition apps as Android has already had this since the Eclair days. Having a dedicated app such as S-Voice and Quick Voice just seems gimmicky to me. But with the popularity it gained from Apple’s Siri, I can’t blame the competition for taking a crack at it.
