Voice assistants have gained popularity in recent years thanks to their ability to facilitate tasks, usually with our mobile devices. Just by asking it out loud, voice assistants help to search for data on the internet or make inquiries about the weather. Being endowed with Artificial Intelligence, you can interact with them using natural language while they learn as they are used. They have multiple benefits and educational applications.
Of all the advantages that voice assistants can have, here are some of the most important:
There is a sophisticated strategy behind every successful skill. We advise you on all essential questions about the voice assistant app development's conception and dialogue options, precisely tailored to your target group. We always keep your business model in mind.
We take over the development of your voice assistant and publish it most professionally. In development, we rely on the highest quality standards so that smooth use can be guaranteed. We can also integrate additional APIs into the voice assistant and thus link the voice assistant with your data.
Users use a variety of ways to interact with their voice assistant. We take care of your voice assistant's continuous maintenance to integrate additional dialogue options and their variants so that the users always achieve the goal of their interaction.
Voice assistants can be found in all areas of life - the diverse skills of Alexa, Siri, Google Assistant, etc. are particularly well-known and widely used. These voice assistants' capabilities are particularly advanced when it comes to SmartHome: Countless tasks can be controlled and networked here and automated. From mowing the lawn to digital shopping. Voice-controlled applications are also beneficial in the car, such as programming navigation systems, reading out data from the on-board computer, and much more. We would be happy to advise you on how you can create creative and individual solutions with voice solutions, delight customers in the long term, and advance your business.
Apple is the pioneer in voice control with its well-known Siri voice assistant. There are also other popular names such as Alexa, Cortana or Bixby. The big advantage with Alexa and Siri is that they are networked with a cloud. The advantage of Google and Siri is that their operating systems offer the option of using voice control without an Internet connection. To do this, users have to make the necessary settings. This is certainly an advantage if the internet connection is unstable.
For voice assistants to work, there are at least two places where there must be functionalities: the device on site and the software in the cloud. Often, there is also a third place: the software of a third company that operates voice apps (skills, actions).
There is a device that provides the human-machine interface at the place where voice assistants are used. These are often the Amazon Echo or Google Home smart speakers, or simply the Google Assistant app on a smartphone. But it can also be other interfaces integrated in household appliances or in the car. These interfaces essentially consist of microphones, speakers and some integrated electronics.
The most important functions of a voice assistant can be found in the cloud or in the data center of the respective provider (with Alexa in the Amazon Cloud, with Google Assistant in the Google Cloud). The on-site smart speakers therefore always need a connection to this cloud software in order to process the spoken queries there and to determine the response dialogues. Therefore, the device must always be connected to the Internet on site if it is to be used.
The voice assistant software in the cloud finally offers software interfaces via which it can pass on requests to third-party software for processing there (e.g. through a company's own programming).
These software can either be on the voice app provider's own servers or in rented computer space in the cloud. If you want to remain in the plausible image of a voice assistant, these voice apps would be brain extensions that add new functions.
