Samsung Galaxy S III website allows voice-based navigation

Samsung’s Galaxy S III website has got a new feature that aims to help you navigate the website while showing off features of the Samsung Galaxy S III. Samsung’s S III website can now be viewed using voice commands; you can tell the website what you want to see about the Galaxy S III by touching a small mic icon on the top. Starting off, you’re greeted with a statement that says, ‘The Samsung Galaxy S III, designed by humans, inspired by nature’ following which you can give your commands as to what you want to see about the phone. Saying "features" while touching and holding the mic icon takes you to the features tab. We tried navigating the website using voice commands and it was a bit of hit or miss – sometimes our voice couldn’t be recognized, while the other times it worked well. One of the advertised features of the Galaxy S III is the S Voice that aims to provide you a handsfree experience as you speak to the phone to get certain tasks accomplished. The website tries to imitate a similar experience for users visiting the site.

Use S Voice to navigate the S III website.



Besides the Siri-esque voice recognition system called S Voice, another feature of the S III that Samsung has been promoting is Smart Stay, a technology that uses the front facing camera to track your eye movement so it keeps the screen on as long as you're looking at it. Social Tag uses face recognition, which scans the faces in your gallery and maps them to your friends on Facebook or other social media sites. S Beam lets you bond and share data instantly between two S III devices using a combination of NFC and Wi-Fi Direct.
