Sending a quick, important text message to somebody can get tricky when both your hands are occupied. But for those who are subscribers of AT&T and have access to Amazon Echo, this will not be a problem at all.
Samsung has announced that it has plans of incorporating an artificial intelligence (AI) digital assistant to the Galaxy S8, its flagship device for next year. If the South Korean phone maker makes good in its plans a few months from now, then it would be joining rival tech giants such as Apple and Google in making full use of AI features in their respective smartphone offerings.
According to the newest leak (courtesy of SamMobile), Samsung’s upcoming flagship device for 2017, the Galaxy S8, is said to sport a 4K display screen as well as an artificial intelligence (AI) assistant developed by Viv, the startup that Samsung had acquired about a week ago.
AT&T is the latest to join the digital assistant club. The second biggest wireless carrier in the United States has announced that is indeed working on a voice assistant that functions similarly to Siri and other popular digital assistant services out there. However, AT&T is doing it by way of a mobile app to subscribers of its Digital Life service.
To open Cortana, Microsoft’s digital assistant, normally one only needs to speak the words “Hey Cortana” and the mobile app would just launch. But the version of this feature that runs on the Android mobile operating system in the United States apparently can no longer be launched with that specific voice prompt.
There were rumors that the world’s most popular social media platform was working on its own version of a personal digital assistant. Well, it turns out the rumors are indeed true. Facebook recently revealed that it was indeed busy testing and polishing a new service called M. Basically, M is a personal digital assistant that is directly integrated inside Facebook’s own Messenger mobile app. M can complete certain tasks as well as search for information.
As reported by the Business Insider, Apple is purportedly planning to launch a voice mail and transcription service that would turn its digital assistant Siri into a personalized answering machine for mobile users.
