Samsung’s users have had a love- hate relationship with the company’s proprietary TouchWiz user interface. That’s why the company has been working on streamlining its interface. The latest version of it is found on the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.
This year Samsung decided to remove certain “main” applications from TouchWiz UI, replacing them with Google’s alternatives. One such application is the Samsung Voice Recorder. Samsung Galaxy S7 / Galaxy S7 Edge owners can now download the app from the Google Play Store.
Samsung has removed a handful of applications from the newest version of TouchWiz UI – including Music and Video Player. Instead, these applications have been added to the Google Play Store and will be available for download. Now the Samsung Voice Recorder has joined the list of apps added to the Google Play Store. The app doesn’t seem to be compatible with other Samsung smartphones, but it will most likely be available on other, future Samsung devices running Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The application itself is a standard voice recording apps with a few unique features. For one, the app allows users to link voice recordings with NFC tags. This means whenever a user touches the back of the phone to an NFC tag, the linked recording will playback automatically. It also has a “Voice Memo” feature, allowing users to record their voices and convert them to on-screen text. The application supports background recording and gives users the option to bookmark points during recording.
