Are you aware of the fact that Samsung’s flagship smartphones have a voice control option that lets you take pictures with your voice? The Galaxy S6 lineup and the Galaxy Note 5 come with such an useful feature and this year, let me tell you that it’s present on your Samsung Galaxy S7 too.
Voice control for taking pictures on Samsung devices works pretty well, but for some reason the company makes things a little harder. It seems that the feature has always been disabled by the manufacturer by default and the complicated part is the fact that not many users have spotted it.
This is exactly what it happened despite of the fact that a few months ago we have been practically sorounded by advertising from Samsung about how great the cameras are on its latest phones. However, there was no word about snapping pictures in such a manner and that is how many pass through this feature.
Follow the steps below to take pictures and record videos by gesture control and voice commands:
