[Android™ 4.4, KitKat] What is Voice Control, and how do I use it on my Samsung Galaxy S® 4?

Your device can answer or reject incoming voice and ChatON™ calls with the voice commands "Answer" or "Reject"; stop or snooze alarms with the commands "Stop" or "Snooze"; take photos with voice commands like "Capture," "Shoot," "Smile," and "Cheese"; and control the music player with the voice commands "Next," "Previous," "Play," "Pause," "Volume Up," and "Volume Down."

Turn On Voice Control

Voice commands are not available if the alert type for calls or alarms is set to vibration.

To turn on the Voice control feature, from the Home screen, touch Menu  > Settings  > My device  > Voice control  . Touch the slider  to turn Voice control on  and touch OK. Deselect any of the voice controls that you do not want turned on.
