Thanks to Apple, every manufacturer now feels like they need their own voice assistant and so begins the borderline mental illness campaign of conversing with your phone. Samsung announced their own version S-Voice, which is launching with the new Samsung Galaxy S III in a couple of days. Now, LG has decided to jump on the voice wagon by announcing their own voice assistant service Quick Voice.
LG’s Quick Voice is expected to debut in Korea and be available on the LG Vu and Optimus LTE 2 later next month thanks to a software update (most likely bringing Android 4.0 as well). Quick Voice will allow LG users to launch apps, complete searches, schedule appointments, make calls, and more. You know, all the stuff you can already do with Android voice actions, only this time with personality.
I guess it’s time to accept the fact that from here on out, we’re going to have to start getting used to the idea of having a conversation with an inanimate object (something that would have had you committed a decade ago).
