Around five minutes after Apple pimped out the new Siri voice recognition feature on the iPhone 4S, we expected it to become something everyone’s going to imitate. After all, who wouldn’t want a phone that they can boss around using natural sentences? While it took a bit of time, it looks like we’ve reached that point. Samsung introduced a similar feature called S-Voice on the Galaxy S III. And now, we’ve got LG, who just introduced their own voice recognition system called Quick Voice.
Quick Voice basically touts the same functionality as Apple’s and Samsung’s feature, letting you use natural speech to go about your smartphone-based business. Features include what’s currently available on Siri, capable of recognizing voice commands to do web searches, ask for specific YouTube viddeos, make phone calls, or schedule reminders on your calendar. It even matches Siri’s newest talent for opening apps.
No word on when it’s going to be implemented on Optimus phones outside Korea yet (or which phones are due to get the update), but it’s going to be available on the Optimus LTE II in July in the country.
