HTC's bark recognition app may be a joke, but HTC could be working on S Voice/Siri competitor -
In keeping with its pet theme this week, HTC has posted an image on Facebook which shows off a bark recognition application. The image above says it all. A dog barks and the app recognizes what the dog is saying. While some of you may find an app like this quite handy, HTC claims the image was created in good fun.
However, we still think that HTC may have something they are still not telling us. Both Apple and Samsung have their own voice recognition and personal assistant technology built into their latest devices, so it wouldn’t be too far of a stretch if HTC was working on their own solution in order to be competitive with its two main rivals.
Personally, I’ve never been a fan of voice control, mainly because I feel awkward talking to my phone when I could simply tap a few buttons and know exactly what the outcome will be. What do you think of Samsung’s S Voice and Apple’s Siri technology? Should HTC pursue their own voice recognition and personal assistant solution or should they just wait to see what Google has cooking in their top-secret lab?
