Aside from reviewing and testing out the hardware of the new Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, people are also interested in the software. Even if it runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow, there’s still the TouchWiz UI to check out. As we all know, the South Korean tech giant is a bit slow when it comes to updating that even Google offered to help and make things faster. It’s no different with device software updates so sometimes, even if the phone is powerful, the user interface is still outdated.
A number of changes have happened recently and Samsung seems to be listening to the cries of the people. For one, some of its exclusive apps are being transferred to the Play Store for quicker updates. You see, most apps aren’t really part of OS upgrades so there’s no need to wait for the rest of the platform to be updated before release.
Samsung started by deleting its native music player and listed it on the Play Store. Next to be found is the voice recorder app which was recently updated. Samsung didn’t announce this change so maybe we’ll see more related apps in the coming days or weeks. If you’re not familiar with the features of the voice recorder, you’ll see them now listed on the description of the app. One interesting item stood out there: NFC tagging. Once you set a voice to an NFC tag, it matches and plays the specific voice whenever the tag is read.
The Samsung Voice Recorder app boasts of several recording modes from Standard to Interview to Voice Memo. Each one shows a different recording interface. You can still receive calls when app is in use but you have the option to reject calls. You may also save or bookmark certain points you want to remember. Note that this app may ask permission to access your microphone, telephone, and storage to do different functions.
Samsung Voice Recorder is exclusive for the new Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. App is currently ready for Verizon and AT&T models only.
