HTC teases upcoming S-Voice and Siri rival

It looks like HTC has been having some fun this afternoon at the expense of blogs and HTC Android fans everywhere. Tossing up a picture on their official Twitter teasing an upcoming S-Voice and Siri rival voice assistant program -- only for dogs. Everyone quickly jumped on it thinking the dog part was just a cover but yes, this was indeed fake.

Google Assistant getting accelerated development

Ever since Siri for iOS was first announced we've seen countless similar apps arrive on the Google Play Store. Google themselves have even had voice actions long before Siri was even around, only in a much different manor. Since then we've heard various reports that Google is working on their own service called Google Assistant -- also known as Project Majel -- and apparently the development has just been fast-tracked.

Samsung S-Voice back and working on all devices

When the awesome developer community managed to share Samsung's new Siri rival called S-Voice with the world it was short lived. Samsung quickly killed the possibility for most and restricted devices access to the servers required to use the voice-guided service. Today however we are hearing things are back up and running again, for all smartphones.

S-Voice gets gagged: Samsung blocks leaked APKs

So, have you been trying out S-Voice, the brand-spanking new (and totally original, we swear) voice app snatched from the Galaxy S III? If you haven't yet, then you needn't bother: Samsung has begun blocking server access for all phones that aren't the Galaxy S III - and since the phone doesn't officially release for another week, that's all of them. So far Samsung has made it clear that the feature is an exclusive to their new flagship.

Google “Assistant” coming late 2012, will best Apple’s Siri

Google has had what we all know as "Voice Actions" long before Apple's Siri came along, it just wasn't shown off on the same big stages and bright lights of commercials. Since then, Google's been working on what rumors and reports have called Project Majel -- a Siri-like voice assistant similar to the current voice actions only better. New details are starting to leak that might have also confirmed the name.

HTC Endeavor RUU leaks with hints of HTC Speak, a Siri rival

Over the weekend a leak for the upcoming HTC Endeavor (HTC Edge) was made available for download and along with it were tons of goodies and surprises. The RUU contained tons of images of HTC Sense UI 4.0 but what is even more interesting is the HTC Speak app that was also included. Possibly hinting that HTC is bringing a speaking and voice-like application to their devices that will rival Apple's Siri.

The latest Siri clone, Evi, is actually worth checking out

There's a new contextual AI voice app out there to take on the likes of Apple's Siri. No, wait! Don't touch that tab bar! There have been a lot of these lately, especially on Android, but Evi is actually worth your time. The new app uses some of the same algorithms and data sources as Apple's hyperbolic app, giving some impressive results using Android's native voice search and text-to-speech engines. You can download the beta app in the Android Market now.
