Wolfram|Alpha’s Knowledge Coming to Samsung Smartphones

We are happy to announce that we have partnered with Samsung to bring Wolfram|Alpha’s computational knowledge to Samsung smartphones. The new GALAXY S III and GALAXY Note will now include the Wolfram|Alpha knowledge base with S Voice and S Note applications.

Integration in Samsung’s S Voice is yet another application of Wolfram|Alpha technology in a voice command app. The S Voice is available exclusively to users of the new GALAXY S III, which was recently released in the US. By simply tapping the home button and speaking, users will be able to get answers to factual questions by drawing on the expert knowledge of Wolfram|Alpha. Users can ask questions such as “How high is Mount Everest?“, “Who is Barack Obama?“, or “What is the weather like today?“, and Wolfram|Alpha will instantly give the correct answer.

Samsung GALAXY Note users can also gain access to Wolfram|Alpha using the S Pen optimized S Note application available through the Premium Suite software upgrade. With the GALAXY Note’s S Pen, users can get answers to an equation or perform a knowledge search simply by writing it out. Users can even write formulas, such as y = 2x + 3, and the S Note app will use Wolfram|Alpha to plot and solve the equation. Users can also write words, and S Note will query Wolfram|Alpha to find the answer. For example, if a user writes “Who is the prime minister of India?“, Wolfram|Alpha will answer “Manmohan Singh”.


I would like to know if you software tools that allow a mathematica user to speak an equation, speak a mathematical model etc.

I want to try and solve a moving boundary problem in CFD and in particular the stokes navier equation that also incorporates an electric field and dimensionless numbers like a weber number.

Any help would be appreciated.

Will the wolfram alpha abilities also be available on the galaxy note 4 like note 3? Please reply soon. Thnk you

    Yes it would be. As the wolfram’s knowledge base is used by S Voice which is available in Note 4.

    Unfortunately it is not available in S-Note app in Samsung Note 4.

      Oh yes it does work on the Note 4. Just open up Quick Connect and use your S Pen to click on the f(x) button.

Can you do formula match and solve in Note 4 as in Note 2? I also have Wolfram App, if there could be handwriting integration into the wolfram alpha app that would be amazing and probably help non-samsung users.
