    Samsung Push Service?

    When I turned my phone on this morning one of the updates that popped up was Samsung Push Service. From the description on the Play store it looks like it does what the phone does already. Icons/messages on the notification bar. Is this anything worth downloading? All the reviews on the Play store are a bunch of totally useless comments with no real reviews what so ever.

    Been trying to figure out the same thing. From what I gathered it is used by Samsung services like chat on, music, and such. It should already be on your phone.

    Yeah VoiceGuy the reviews helped me a lot <Grin>.
    Usually I can get a clue from the reviews about what it is and why I need it.
    I sure don't speak that language.
    I even scrolled down some to see if I could get to one that wasn't in Vulcan or Ewok.

    It's an update service for the factory Samsung apps that aren't available in the play store... S Voice, S Calender, S memo, messaging, any of the Samsung apps.... Prior to this there wasn't a reliable way of updating those apps without having Samsung Apps installed.... Even then it wasn't reliable... Now with this "Push" service updated Samsung will be able to PUSH out OTA updates to those apps if needed.... I am going to assume there is some sort of update coming to some of those apps which requires this service.... My money is on S voice... The S4 system dump showed up and that was a key improvement and I think they are going to push that version to the S3.... Again this is just my personal opinion and guess..... But I do KNOW that that is what the Samsung Push service is for... It is a more reliable way of making users aware of available updates...... Much like the Play Store and your carrier do....

    Going with that it is probably preparations for when we get the mayor update. That and for when we get all the S4 features.

    I didn't accept the update myself and have also been using the new S4 S-voice all week with no problems. Dana accepted it and we're going to monitor our phones to see if we noticed any differences along the way.

    You shouldn't notice any difference except that if/when Samsung pushes the updates for those apps you may not receive it right when it comes out like she will.... Does the new S voice seem to be working better for you than the old one... I seem to be getting better results with it recognizing phrases and seems to be a little faster.....

    TBH it works just as good as the S3 version worked....(which I never had a problem with myself) I've put it through quite a barrage of tasks and it's performed them all well.
