Voice assistant

A voice assistant is an app that uses voice recognition and artificial intelligence to provide automated service via vocal interactions, generally without using a screen.

Voice assistants are built into several devices: smartphones, computers, smart speakers and watches, connected cars…

Examples include Apple’s Siri, Microsoft’s Cortana, and Alibaba’s Tmall Genie in China.

Voice assistants are sometimes referred to as “smart personal assistants”.
