The application uses a natural language user interface to answer questions, make recommendations, and perform actions by delegating requests to a set of Web services.[1][2] It is based on the Vlingo personal assistant.[3]

The Galaxy S5 and later Samsung Android devices' S Voice runs on Nuance instead of Vlingo.

Some of the capabilities of S Voice include making appointments, opening apps, setting alarms, updating social network websites such as Facebook or Twitter and navigation. S Voice also offers multitasking as well as automatic activation features, for example when the car engine is started.[4][5]

In a disclaimer that pops up on first opening S Voice, Samsung states that the app is provided by a third party which it does not name.[6]
