Samsung S Voice ripped and available for ICS devices

0. phoneArena 20 May 2012, 00:35 posted on

S Voice has been one of the new features of the Samsung Galaxy S III that we've been on the fence about. It could very well be useful, but the problem is that the usefulness of a voice command "assistant" has yet to be proven...

Well, in that case,you can also jailbreak it and have siri on other iDevices. And Samsung also made S Voice only for the GS3, not only Apple.

how long can it take for samsung to do the same? You never know. Besides you still have other servers to use siri. You would do the same if you were realising a technology specific for one device and someone "stole it" and especially if it's a a big selling point for a device.

Samsung doesnt have S-Voice running through their servers. It is just an app. Technically its Vlingo with some upgrades to its usability. Apple has Siri running through its servers to monitor what you search.

It hasn't been extensively tested, but so far it is known to work on the Galaxy Nexus and Sharp Aquos. It's less likely to work on non-Samsung devices, but root is not a requirement.

it stands the most chance of working rooted i'd say. i had to do a very particular process to get it to work on my Razr.

You DO NOT need to be rooted, here's a patched one I made with a friend :)

EDIT: It works on the HTC EVO 3D and HTC EVO 4G and Galaxy S II

EDIT2: It works on non-samsung devices. At least on what I have that's not Samsung.

People, after downloading content from untrusted sources, dont cry about malware and don't blame Android OS. :)

P.S. I don't say that it is malware, I just say that it may be a malware, because source is untrusted.

i got it earlier on my ICS Razr and it works pretty well. any attempt to change the wake up call will result in a FC and you have to clear the app data to be able to use it again but as far as giving it commands it works beautifully. it opens apps, searches the web, finds locations, brings up the weather and navigates to the home address i set in the settings flawlessly.

oh and to you Razr owners after multiple different attempts the only way i've gotten it to work on the Razr is to NOT change the permissions, copy it to system/app, reboot, install through system/app and DO NOT try to change the wake up call. do everything i just put here and it will work just fine for you.
