Setup and Use S Voice on Samsung Galaxy S5
- 5We can simply skip the tutorial and jump right into S Voice, or we can learn how to use S Voice by taking a quick tutorial. We're going to go ahead and take the tutorial, and I'm going to walk you through that, then show you some examples of how it works. Tap tutorial. If you don't want to take the tutorial, just tap on Start S Voice to skip to the next section.Now it is showing us a tutorial.
- 7You can say Call, Text, Search. Why you would be in a position to search for apes on your Galaxy, I'm not sure, but they seem to feel that that's where you would be. As stated, you can tap on the mic and say "Search for Monkeys"When you say "Hi Galaxy", the phone will pop up and you will get some options.
- 11Here you can Disable Voice Feedback, see Example Commands, go to the Tutorial, Settings or Help. Disable Voice Feedback means you're not going to get feedback from her. You can just tell the phone what to do and sometimes it won't exactly do it, so I find the Voice Feedback is quite helpful.You can also tap on the three dots in the top right corner.
- 13At the moment I've got English (United States), you also can hide potentially offensive words. I have not found that S Voice uses offensive words much, but I do suppose it's possible that an offensive word could slip in here and there. I'm not sure how, but it could happen.You've also got some Settings, you can change the settings if you want.
- 14You can even log into Facebook if you'd like to do that. I find S Voice to be a very helpful and useful feature.You can open with two taps on the home key, voice wake-up, auto start on speakerphone, show the body of messages, check missed events, there's a huge number of options that you have here.

Questions and Answers
How to set up headset or handsfree on Galaxy S5?
After connecting the headset I cannot hear any voice from headset, there is voice on both phone and headset
If your voice settings are working fine, but there is no headset output, you will need to make sure your headset is not damaged. To set up hands free, please visit our guide for turning Driving Mode on and off.
Hi, yes please! Can I have my S5 address me by my name like siri does?
If so, could you please walk me through the steps? Thank you!
S Voice does not mention you by name. You can tweak the settings to know your home address or work address in Google Maps for better directions etc and tweak somewhat how you say a command but that is all.
How can I change the weather unit from F to Celsius on Galaxy S5 S-Voice app?
How can I change the weather unit from F to Celsius on Galaxy S5 S-Voice app ?
Your Samsung Galaxy S5 will announce the weather in the format you have set the weather application up in. In the event you have not set up your weather, it will default to your location. To change this, simply update the weather settings, and S Voice will adjust accordingly.
To change this, you can go to the S Voice settings (represented in the app by three dots), and click that, to access the settings menu, where you can adjust options to show the correct weather format.
I use voice command to compose phone number?
When I use the function dial or call 1 819 372 9969, my Samsung S5 only dial 372 9969. Why?
You are speaking out the number sequence before the voice command is ready. This is why it only picks up the last few digits. Pause then speak out the numbers.
How to change the speaker default?
When I used the S-Voice and ask to call a number it defaults to the speaker when it makes the call. don't want that.
Open the S Voice app and tap the three dots at the top of the upper right hand of the screen. Under Settings, there is an option to disable Auto Start Speakerphone. Once this is disabled it will not automatically turn on the speakers when making a call with S Voice.

Will S-Voice work without being connected to a network? I don't have access to a network?
I am not connected to a network and want to use S Voice to send a text message. I have tried: Tried repeatedly to open S Voice or to text by choosing the microphone option and still won't permit me to use speech to text
As long as you are connected to WiFi then it should work. Clear the cache and data of S Voice from within Applications Manager. Then restart the app and see if you can reconfigure it. You can also use Google Now instead of S Voice.
I have a Galaxy S3 with a broken screen. How can I get a list of text's by user read to me using S-Voice?
I have a broken S3 with a blank screen and a bad USB connection. I want to use S-Voice to read me texts. It says I have 30 texts from 15 users. S-Voice asks me which text's to read. Is there a way I can say display 1st text? Thanks
Say All when it asks you which text's to read. Otherwise, if you know who sent them you can have the texts read per contact name.
Can you help me set up voice recognition option for messages?
I have a Samsung 5S Edge and want to set up voice recognition for messages. Currently, the phone does not show on message screen option. Car Mode is the better option for reading messages on a regular basis. Enable TalkBack and then you can configure how you want the messages to work.
My S voice will only write to me how can I get her to talk instead of me reading from her?
If I ask her anything it processes and then writes the response to me. I want her to say it out loud. How can I make her do that?. I have tried: I tried changing the language and other things in settings and nothing worked. I think it was caused by: Probably because my phone was flashed and rebooted
Within the Settings of the S Voice app, check to see if Voice Back is enabled. Personally, I find that Google Now works but more efficiently for text to speech options. The S Voice can get buggy or stop working for no apparent reason.
Help dialing out using voice on Bluetooth device?
Have a motorcycle headset, want to make phone calls using voice, have paired the two devices using Bluetooth and can listen to mp3 songs alternately stops music and puts phone calls through when someone phones me, just need to work out how to dial out using voice. I have tried: Hit mike icon nothing happens. I think it was caused by: No idea
The screen has to be activated on the S Voice. You can change the settings for how the app sleeps and wakes up. Also, configure Google Now. Then you can say OK Google Call Mom etc. I have both configured for my device and find I often use one or the other as backup when the first attempt fails while driving.
