Voice in a Can creator here: happy to answer any questions

Hi,

I'm the creator of Voice in a Can ... originally just for the Apple Watch and now also for Samsung Watches running Tizen 4+ . If anyone has any questions, either technical about the implementation, or about the app's capabilities please fire away.

Re the battery status what do you mean?

Re the Widget - I did think of that but I wasn't sure what value it would add ... you mean to more easily launch it?

What I *really* want to do is create a Tizen 5.0 complication so that people can place the launcher on their watchfaces ... hope Tizen 5 devices come out soon!

Thanks! If you have a moment to leave a review in the Galaxy Apps store I'd really appreciate it!

anyway we will have this for google assistant too?

My reading of the Google Assitant terms of service is that it is for new hardware devices only, but I'd love to be told I'm wrong, since I'm pretty sure I've done a lot of the hard work with the low-level audio and http/2 connections already.

Registration

Hello. Just bought the app from the GalaxyApps Store. However, every time I launch it from the watch, it gives me a new registration code. I enter it, I get the message saying it was successful and my registration is now complete. Then it happens all over again. What am I doing wrong?

Edit: OK, it seems to be fine now. On the 9th or 10th try, it stayed registered. I don't think I changed anything from one instance to another, so I couldn't tell you what caused the different outcome.

Hi,

Which phone and watch do you have? I know it does not show up in the iPhone Galaxy Apps because they do not list paid apps there . :(

If you have an S3 or Sport can you verify that you have the Tizen 4.0 update applied?

Also could you let me know what country you are in, and what country your account is registered to? I've enabled it for everywhere except China, but I've had someone from Costa Rica that was not able to find it either.

I'm still trying to find my way around the Samsung store.

Regards,
Damian

Hi, am using an S8 on Pie and S3 sport.
Looks like watch is still on 3.0, with no update available. Registered in UK, and used in UK

Is Alexa or your app able to write and send messages using voice recognition ? It's a pain with "period" and punctuation signs in S-Voice ...

Which languages are supported ?

Thanks for your work anyway.

AFAIK you can't use Alexa to write and send voice messages ... the app doesn't "know" anything about your Watch or Phone ... it just provides Alexa functionality (general questions, home device control etc.). It should support any language that Alexa supports .. the language it uses depends on the Amazon account you use to sign up. Definitely English, German and Itialian .... but all should work (if Amazon Alexa supports them).
