HTC working on a Siri-esque app?

0. phoneArena 22 Jun 2012, 16:24 posted on

Making fun of voice controlled virtual personal assistants like S Voice and Siri, HTC has been showing a totally made up conversation between a dog and a virtual assistant; obviously a gag, the joke was sent out by the 'Taiwan based manufacturer via a tweet...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

they just use Siri as a buzz word to get trolls in here to read the article. If the article simply was "HTC to make improvements to its voice command system", would you have read it? no.... i didnt think so

nah, your not the only iNut here... your just the only one with name brand recognition.

I wasnt going to post on this article, heck I didnt even think about opening it until the conversation markers started going, then I wanted to see who was having the food fight.

Just because manufacturers find it useful doesn't mean users do. They're doing this probably just to attract the iCrowd who think voice commands are exclusive to the iPhone. I have a Galaxy S3 for almost 2 weeks and haven't touched S Voice other than to turn it off when I double tap the home button.

So from now on I guess every voice assistant will be Siri-wannabe. This is pathetic as these features has bn on these fones,4 like, ever. If only I could wake uP one day and ppl had stopped compering every voice assistant to Siri or calling it a copy of Siri.

Well...I feel bad about how oem try to follow trends...Android already have a voice command system...which works fine...its not interactive as siri but is good enough to follow commands...I am sure many people around me at work have iPhone4s...never ever saw/heard anyone interacting with Siri...its more like a fun feature of iPhone than a usable...but still its best known imlementation till now in a mobile device...credit for this should go to original developers of app and then Apple for its marketing.

Now, google should try to collabrate efforts between various oems for features like this...so that they all can work together for mutual benefit...just a recent example I can think of...If anyone have interest in cars will uinderstand...toyota and subaru together developed a car and they are selling it under their own brands (Toyota GT-86, Scion FR-S, Subaru BRZ)...cost of development is reduced and they are enoying benefits of each other's knowledge.

Yeah, it sucks but at least they made it themselves and not just buy it from someone and claim they made it. Besides, it works pretty well now, especially with vlingo and the whole array of other voice assistant available.
