June 20, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

One more name joins the world of intelligent voice assistants. Following Samsung’s S Voice which debuted with Galaxy S III, LG has now come out with LG Quick Voice to raise the pitch against the much-hyped intelligent voice assistant from Apple – Siri.

Among the smartphones from LG’s stable, Optimus Vu will be the luckiest one to have the LG Quick Voce assistant first.

According to LG’s official announcement, the Qucik Voice feature will come out by the end of June.

Like its rivals, LG’s Quick Voice also supports controlling calls through voice commands, and texting by dictation.

Users can also access contacts in their phone or the calendar app with the help of Quick Voice. Say the search query and Quick Voice will search the web for you.

LG claims that the new feature enables the user to give spoken commands to the phone in a natural way to get things done, without bothering to click or tap on the screen.

According to LG, the service enables users to ask for specific videos on YouTube by just telling it to the app in one sentence.

It also offers voice control for mapping apps, alarms, and apps related to weather and stocks. For Korean market, the new feature offers checking the lunar calendar through spoken commands.

LG Optimus LTE II will be blessed with the new intelligent assistant in July, but only in Korea. LG is yet to reveal the release date of the new feature for phones outside Korea.
