Samsung Galaxy S5: How to Set My Phone to Say the Caller's Name of a Specific Contact in Android 5.0.1 Lollipop

Yesterday, an insider left his comment and said that he wanted his phone to say his friend's name when receiving incoming calls from her. Fortunately, if you own Samsung Galaxy S5, you can enable the notification readout feature for favourite calls so that your phone will read the caller's name when receiving incoming calls from your favourite contacts, or you can use the stock Voice recorder app to record your voice that say a contact's name and then set it as ringtone for the desired contact.

  3. Scroll the screen to the very bottom and then tap Notification readout.
