Use S Voice on Any ICS Device, Not Only on Galaxy S3

S Voice, the Android personal assistant that provides similar functionality to Apple’s Siri, is a feature available only for the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich-powered Samsung Galaxy S3. But that doesn’t mean you cannot use this advanced natural language user interface on other devices powered by ICS. The APK for the S Voice has been leaked to the web, meaning that you can get the app and use it on any device powered by Android 4.0.

The APK is available in an archive that you can download here. Extract the contents of the archive, run the voicetalk.apk file, then follow the instructions to install it. We tested the app on an Android 4.0-powered Galaxy S1 device and it seems to work just fine. Reports on the web have it that it also works fine on the Galaxy S2, Nexus S, and even on the HTC Desire. Just don’t play with the option to unlock through voice, as this may get the app to force-close.

If you are not familiar with S Voice, let me give you a quick presentation: this is an app that responds to voice input and lets you search for info and control the device by using your voice. With S Voice you can use your voice to send out emails, organize your schedule, find out how the weather is like, tell the phone to snooze when the alarm goes off and you don’t want to wake up.

Today, the 29th of May, is the day when the Samsung Galaxy S3 officially launches in 28 countries around Europe and the Middle East. In July, the device will become available in 145 countries, Samsung explained. What Samsung did not say is when the S3 will become available in North America. Rumors on the web have it that this will happen in June. It remains to be seen if that is the case.

The S3 features a 1.4GHz quadcore processor, 1GB of RAM, a 4.8 inch super AMOLEAD display, an 8MP front and a 1.9MB front camera, and it is available in two colors: pebble blue and marble white. A Samsung executive let it slip that pre-orders for the S3 have exceeded the 9 million mark.
