What Is A Voice-Activated Chatbot?

 

 

The limit of chatbots’ capabilities has been pushed further by giving them Voice.

Voice-activated chatbots are future human interactions via machines. This is because some programs interact through voice and have Artificial Intelligence coding inside their core. I’m going to give you some examples of what the most used voice-activated chatbots can do for us today. Yes, I’m talking about Amazon’s Alexa, Google’s Assistant, iPhone’s Siri and Microsoft’s Cortana.

♦ Travel
They can help us find airfares, and book and buy air tickets. They are the best travel companions, as they know everything about every place.

 ♦ Email
They give updates for new emails, and they can read our emails and even write a new one for us and send it.

♦ Messaging and Calling
Messaging options are the same as email; they can search our contact list and send a text to someone or call someone for us.

♦ Sports
They can give us updates on sports matches.

♦ Music
They are the best DJ to our ears; there is no more a need for someone to play a song for you ─ you can ask your chatbot, and it will not say no.

♦ Weather
Gives updates on the weather, and alerts for inclement weather.

♦ Calendar
They are our personal assistants and keep track of our schedules.

♦ Social
Yes, they are social in some ways, as they can tell you a joke ─ even a bad one ─ but definitely, they can help us with information when discussing various topics with our friends, and even straighten out our facts. 

♦ Translation
You can go everywhere on the planet with us ─ they will help order coffee in Italian if you are traveling in Italy, so you don’t look dumb.

♦ Basic Tasks
We can set them to do basic tasks for us, like order supplies every Monday, or send your coworker a text the next day, so you don’t forget, etc.

Each bot will have various skill sets and knowledge basis, but don’t worry, as shortly they will upgrade and provide us with much more.

♦ Voice Controlled Home
We will enter our home and interact with our devices and our house through Voice. Devices will have the ability to be controlled through an App and will quickly be transformed into voice controlled devices. Either Alexa, Siri, Cortana or Google will be the connection that will provide us to control these devices through Voice.

Bots are there to offer us help in a variety of fields, but a few companies are pursuing the home segment of Voice control even further, with one of them being Josh.ai. And they are doing a good job, so far, as by using their assistant, you can give a set of tasks all at once, which is little different with the other assistants where you must tell them to do one thing and then another. This is something to look forward to, for sure!

Final Thoughts

Voice-activated chatbots are here to stay, and this technology is spreading through the world. They will change the way we do things and will be much faster and easier to use as time goes on.
