The Alice voice assistant has received several new features in the search application, which expand the list of scenarios for its use. Here are the main innovations:
- “Alice” has learned to read pages aloud – she can read articles and recipes when your hands are busy. It is enough to say “Alice, read the page.”
- Alice also has quick access to frequently used functions: for example, you can listen to music and switch your favorite tracks right in the Alice window. There you can also call contacts from the phone book – for example, by the command “Alice, call mom.” The assistant will specify right in the window which number to call if there are several.
- The interface of “Alice” in the application has also changed. Now it adapts to different content, changing its shape and leaving more usable space on the smartphone screen.
- Also, from the window with an assistant, you can quickly go to a chat with an assistant, to a smart camera, or see a complete list of skills.
New features are gradually becoming available on all devices with the Yandex search application.
