Gone are the days where you’d have to hop into a third-party app to search for a great place for coffee or the nearest dry cleaners to get a shirt cleaned before a big meeting. As an extension of our partnership with Samsung, Hiya will now provide its business profile service, Samsung Places, on the Galaxy Note 8 along with the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S8 and all A-Series and J-Series devices.
“Most mobile business searches originate on web search or third-party apps even when the intent is to place a call,” said Mayur Kamat, VP Product at Hiya. “Hiya and Samsung are working on reinventing the Dialer, making it the best way to search for and call anyone — your friends, your neighborhood business or your airline. Whether you want to find the best place to grab a bite, or a restaurant that is open past midnight, you can now do so right from within the Note 8, A-Series and J-Series’ Phone app.”
The one-stop shop dialer has been providing our users with it services for about fives months, and millions are already taking advantage of its functionality. Check out this step-by-step tutorial below to start using Samsung Places straight from your phone’s dialer:
