How to Use Samsung Galaxy S 5’s S-Voice to Update Facebook Statuses

By Bill Hughes

Of course, nothing really happens in today’s world unless it exists on Facebook. The Samsung Galaxy S 5’s S-Voice gives you the tools to update your status without going to the trouble of using your keyboard.

Although you may have already have Facebook on your phone, you still need to introduce S-Voice to your Facebook account. Here’s what you do:

  1. From the S-Voice screen, tap the Menu button.

    This brings up a pop-up menu.

  2. Tap Settings.

    This brings up the options for S-Voice. Scroll down to the bottom.


  3. Tap on the Log In to Facebook link.

    If you haven’t already done so, log in to the Facebook app for S-Voice.


  4. Enter your Facebook user ID and password.

    Ironically, you need to type in this information in the appropriate boxes. S-Voice won’t do it for you.

  5. Tap Log In.

    This choice installs the app you need on your phone to log in via S-Voice.

  6. Tap Allow All.

    This gives permission for S-Voice to post on your behalf. (Sheesh. Lawyers.)

Now you are ready to post on your Facebook account. To do so, say “Post on Facebook.”.


At this point, your words turn into text. The text is just like a typical post on Facebook. You share you status, and wait for your friends to Like it or comment.
