Samsung Galaxy S8 will have business search capability within the dialer app

S8 owners can use the “Places” tab to find a local business and make a call without having to switch apps. “Places” can also recommend businesses to the user based on their location and time of day. The feature will be available to users in 27 countries, including the U.S.

What We Delivered

We worked on the software of the Galaxy S8 – the Places tab shows you nearby POIs as contacts, using components built by us both on the phone and on the server.

What others say

Phone calls remain the most effective interaction for businesses and consumers and yet, calling a business is a needlessly cumbersome process.

Mayur KamatVP of Product, Hiya

Replacing the “Favorites” tab in the native dialer with a new tab called “Places”, providing users a way to find and call local businesses without switching to a third-party app.

Hiya

Places eliminates the need to go to a browser or a map to find a local establishment and its contact details just so you can call it up.
