Prepare to Work with S-Voice on Galaxy S6

By Bill Hughes

Texting is a straightforward example, but it is just one of the tasks S-Voice can do for you. You can ask S-Voice to do all kinds of things on your Galaxy S6. Some examples include:

  • Telling you the time

  • Setting an alarm

  • Turning Wi-Fi on or off

  • Telling you the weather forecast

  • Setting a countdown timer

  • Recording your voice

  • Opening an app

  • Playing a playlist

  • Adding an appointment to your schedule

  • Finding a local restaurant, store, or public location

  • Navigating to an address or location

All you need to do is ask, and S-Voice does a good job finding what you want. For example, you can ask for a nearby McDonald’s, and S-Voice comes back with some options, as shown here.

Then you can ask it for directions to the McDonald’s you choose. This request causes S-Voice to hand you over to your preferred navigation application, bringing up a screen like the one shown here.

Now all you need to do is drive there safely and enjoy!
