    Dragon Mobile Assistant Beta on Android is Updated; Voice Activate Apps and Music


    If you have been following the Dragon Mobile Assistant beta, you will be excited to know that they just updated it, and brought some very cool new features. The app now lets you do even more stuff using voice activation. It now features the ability to voice activate apps, music, alarms and much more. The app now also supports Gingerbread/Android 2.3 and up, instead of just ICS. Here's the full press release with all the details,

    Nuance's Dragon Mobile Assistant App Expands Personal Assistant Capabilities and Availability for Android

    Now Supporting Android 2.3 and Higher, Dragon Mobile Assistant Now Lets People Launch and Play Music, Set Alarms and Open Apps Just by Speaking – No Hands Required

    Burlington, Mass. – December 20, 2012 – Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) today announced that its Dragon Mobile Assistant for Android has expanded its personal assistant capabilities and extended its beta offering to the broader Android community. 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!" or "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.

    "Consumers asked for Dragon Mobile Assistant on a wide range of Android devices after our launch in late October," said Michael Thompson, executive vice president and general manager, Nuance Mobile. "So we expanded availability and added some of the most popular personal assistant features."

    Availability
    Dragon is available in beta for free in English on Google Play in the US, supporting Android 2.3 and above. To download Dragon, visit https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...uance.balerion.

    Of course this is subjective and frivolous, but doesn't it seem much cooler to have your voice activated assistant be called Dragon instead of Siri?

    Thanks for the heads-up. I read up on it and have downloaded and installed. I will play with it today on my short list of errands.
