LG Q Voice Release 2013
According to the principle of the Q Voice technology it maintains like Apple Siri or Samsung S Voice. It uses natural language processing to answer questions and give advice. For example, users can get the weather forecast and information on nearby restaurants, making a simple voice request. Siri’s advantage of that voice recognition technology is that it adapts to each user individually, by studying his preference for a long time and learning his preferences and needs.
At the current moment Q Voice Service only recognizes the commands made only in the Korean language. It works with 11 applications in the Android operating system. According to the developers, the technology is able to “hear” a female voice in a noisy crowd of men and recognize it as a command.
Right now only a 5-inch Optimus Vu smartphone is equipped with the Q Voice. The next phone supporting LG Q Voice after its release in 2013 will be the Optimus LTE II, which will receive a software update in July. Company’s strategy of implementing Q Voice differs from Samsung’s or Apple’s. If the last two companies have put the voice assistance only into the top models (Samsung Galaxy S III and iPhone 4S correspondingly), LG plans to add the assistant to the whole line of LG Optimus smartphones along with other company’s devices in the nearest future.
South Korean company has to make something really special to compete with rapidly growing market of mobile voice assistants, especially if they plan to launch the service in 2013 and not right now. What do you think about it?
