On the note 3 when your alarm goes off you can say dismiss or snooze. How do I get that on my s5,and what is it called?

Thanks in advance!

I just looked in 'Alarm settings' and the only 'Smart Alarm' I see is just giving it an ascending loudness is the only difference. Nothing about voice deactivation.
If I helped you, hit thanks if you like.

I spent a great deal of time hunting this down the other day.There's no voice control option on this device unless they hid the dickens out of it.

I found on Google that it has been removed on S5. It was one of the "gimmicks" that got axed.

My wife had the same issue on her Galaxy S5. I own an S3, and for me, that's been one of the niftiest features!

I did some research on the matter to find a suitable replacement. I find that Wake Voice (available in the Google Play Store) does a nice job. It contains all the features of the Samsung solution, but in addition, you can set it up to read the weather, news and your horoscope. These are options the Samsung solution never offered.

The developer offers a 10 alarm trial. After that, it's just under $3 (US) to obtain the paid version.

HTH
