With Dragon, your personalized voice-enabled virtual assistant is ‘always on’ and ready to respond to your requests. Dragon Mobile Assistant can tell friends where you are, can dial you into scheduled conference calls and – using our text to speech technology – Dragon Mobile Assistant can read your calendar alerts, Facebook Newsfeed updates and your text messages back to you.
Let Nuance help you turn your Android smartphone into an intelligent personal virtual assistant that is ready to serve with two simple words, “Hello Dragon.” From there, just ask Dragon Mobile Assistant for just about anything.
Running on empty? Just say, “Give me directions to a gas station near here.” Craving pizza? Ask Dragon, “What’s the closest pizza place?” Need to catch up on your favorite shows? Just say “Netflix” to launch the app. And when you’re looking to find your friends at the new taqueria down the street, just ask Dragon “Where’s John?” to see his location on the map.
Dragon Mobile Assistant already gives Android lovers the must-have mobile virtual assistant features to quickly access information, content, apps, music and people, as well as set appointments and get directions, just by using their voice – no hands required. Dragon’s latest enhancements further evolve the virtual assistant experience with new anticipatory capabilities that showcase the true potential of our digital wingman.
