LG has revealed that it will rival both Apple and Samsung with the launch of its own voice assistant, dubbed as Quick Voice.
Just like Apple’s Siri and Samsung’s S Voice, “e-intelligent voice recognition” software Quick Voice will help mobile device owners control several functions on their handsets through voice commands.
According to a press release statement given in Korea, the local smartphone maker announced that the new software will offer support for 11 applications during its launch, which include text, voice call, alarms, contacts, calendar, web search, weather, voice maps and stocks.
Alas, LG users worldwide need not celebrate yet, for the service will exclusively be available to the Korean market.
Koreans who own the LG Optimus Vu will be lucky to be the first users of Quick Voice after receiving an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update later this month. LG Optimus LTE 2 owners will receive the software by next month.
The company has yet to announce if plans to release the software to other global markets sometime in the future.
The announcement came one day after LG said it will put tablet development in the backburner to concentrate more on the smartphone industry.
