South Korea is planning to launch a Google Voice voice recognition application on Tuesday, the country’s National Intelligence Service said in a statement.
The app will be available in the country as a free app, according to the National Intelligence Agency, a state-run news agency.
The launch of Google Voice in South Korean is a first step towards opening up voice communication to more people and allowing them to have more control over the way they communicate with others.
The National Intelligence Department said that it had received more than 1.8 million requests for access to the app, which was developed in partnership with Google.
The app will allow users to make voice calls, write and read email, access webpages and other applications, the agency said.
It will be open to all residents of South Korea from age 13 to 65, according the National Bureau of Statistics.
The agency also announced that it will open the app to the public on Monday.
The service will provide a way for people to access their personal data and communicate with their families, friends and others in the same way as they would through their phones or other devices, according an advisory published on the National Security Agency’s website.
It also will be used for intelligence gathering, according a statement published on Tuesday.
The announcement follows South Korea’s decision to expand its intelligence capabilities under President Moon Jae-in, who has vowed to expand the countrys surveillance capabilities.
The new Google Voice app will help the South Korean government gain more data on the number of people and organizations using social media sites, as well as the people who communicate with them, the government said in the advisory.
The news agency cited a senior intelligence official who said the app would be used to gather information on “political and social groups.”
“In this way, we will be able to make use of the vast data available from social media websites, including the number and location of users who are connected to them,” the official said.
“If we do this, we can use this information to find out who is communicating with the opposition, to find information about their activities, their political beliefs, and their social networks,” he said.
