21 September 2017
Yandex has prepared a new surprise for users of its mobile browser. However, so far we are talking only about the owners of iPhones. The fact is that in the latest beta-version of Yandex.Browser for iOS there is an opportunity to address the voice assistant Alice.It is reported that, despite the fact that the ability to interact with the assistant is still being tested, Alice can already support simple dialogues, answer questions, search for organizations and build routes, and even sometimes joke. At the same time, according to the developers, the assistant can still provide the information that can be obtained from Yandex. It is interesting that Alice remembers the history of the dialogue, which eliminates the need to ask the same questions all over again. In addition, it is able to make adjustments to the constructed routes, if the user needs to find and visit any organization. All users of the beta version of Yandex.Browser for iOS can already try out the capabilities of Alice. To do this, it is only necessary to click on the microphone icon and ask your question. As for the owners of gadgets running Android, for them the relevant innovation will be available a little later.
