Nuance’s Dragon Mobile Assistant Gets Upgraded, With Expanded Support and More
Nuance Communications announced this week that its Dragon Mobile Assistant for Android has expanded its personal assistant abilities. It also extends the beta service to a bigger part of the Android community. Now, it supports devices running Android 2.3 and higher and Dragon enables almost all Android users in the US to take advantage of the personal assistant experience on Android.
You can play music, set the alarm and open apps simply via vocal command. Dragon uses Nuance’s natural language understanding technology and unique directed search capabilities with a intelligent and intuitive personal assistant experience. It all starts up by saying “Hi Dragon” and from there the technology takes over and all you need to do is speak to send mails and texts, make calls, set appointments, set the alarm, play a song and navigate to addresses.
Dragon offers people access to the content from the mobile web for more than 200 content providers. There are no blue links or paid searches, just mobile assistant doing research for you. The latest update this December, brought the software to version 2.0.0 and added support for opening third party apps, playing music and Android 2.3 devices, as well as the usual bug fixes.
