Hi all,

I upgraded my Koodo Samsung Galaxy S II X and the upgrade went fine, but I lost my ability to do voice commands. I used to be able to send texts and a bunch of other stuff hands free with my Bluetooth in my car, but now I can only make and answer calls.

Anyone else experience this? Any way to get voice commands back to the way it was?

Thanks in advance

Is it S-Voice that you used before? You might have to set up S-Voice again

You can try downloading and installing this S-Voice app onto your S2x. It offers driving mode and requires a network connection to function. It's borrowed from the S4's version of S-Voice and works well on the S2x, here are some screenshots of the app running on my S2x.

Thanks. I have downloaded it and will give it a go. Looks like an upgraded version of what I used to have.

Still curious as to why it disappeared. Looks like Samsung decided to drop it for some reason. Anyone know why?
