Dragon Releases New Update And Broadens Device Support
Today at Nuance we announced a new version of our Dragon Mobile Assistant for Android with expanded personal assistant capabilities, and we extended availability to the broader Android community beyond the currently supported 4.0 and higher devices. Now supporting devices running Android 2.3 and higher, Dragon enables nearly all Android users in the U.S. to get more out of their Android personal assistant experience with the ability to play music, set their alarm and open other applications just by speaking.
Dragon combines Nuance’s industry leading natural language understanding and unique directed search capabilities with an intelligent and intuitive personal assistant experience. Simply say “Hi Dragon,” and from there the technology of the mobile interface disappears as people can simply speak to send text messages, make calls, set appointments, and now set the alarm, play their favorite song, or get instant access to apps including games, navigation, and more.
People can say:
- “Set the alarm to wake me at 6:30 AM”
- “I want to listen to Aerosmith!”
- “Open Angry Birds.”
And when set to its always-listening Driver Mode, Dragon’s personal assistant experience is completely hands-free.
Further, Dragon gives people direct, open access to the content and knowledge they want on the mobile web from more than 200 content providers – no blue links or paid search advertising – just a mobile assistant that works.
Dragon is available in beta for free in English on Google Play in the US, supporting Android 2.3 and above. To download Dragon, click here.
