This new intelligent voice recognition software service will be made available for the upcoming Optimus family smartphones. The Quick Voice service will be able to let the user interact using voice commands for voice calls, text, contacts, alarms, calendar and eleven other applications. Of course, those apps include weather, maps, stocks, and even web search.
The natural language processing driven services and applications are on rise in the recent months. After Apple introduced the virtual assistant that involves natural language processor, several similar services are on rise. Recently Samsung introduced similar voice driven assistant dubbed as the S-Voice with the Galaxy S III smartphone. Now the only player left is HTC and it will not be a surprise if that company too launches a virtual assistant.
Infact, Google itself is reportedly working on a natural language processing assistant dubbed as Assistant aka Project Majel. This service is expected to be unveiled next month at the Google I/O conference.
