Samsung Galaxy S7 Send SOS messages in critical situations

If you ever get into an emergency situation in which you need to quickly inform one of your relatives about your location, then you can use the SOS message service, which has been implemented on the Samsung Galaxy S7.

This service does not replace the call to the relevant authorities such as fire department, police and rescue services, but communicates to one or more contacts of you, where you are currently staying. Additionally a photo or a sound is recorded.
