Indigo pushes Siri-like features to multiple platforms

Mobile
-Hey guys. This is Eric Franklin from CNET. I'm at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. Right now, I'm looking at Indigo from Artificial Solutions. It's a personal voice assistant similar to Siri or Google Now, but the difference here is it works across different OS's. That means Android, Windows 8, and soon iOS. What's the weather forecast in Barcelona this week? This is Indigo on Windows Phone 8. This is your interface. You can kinda scroll through and kinda see some of the-- anything you have set like these are some alarms, notes, some of your favorites like, you know, tell me a joke, some of the things you say most commonly, and then your reminders. It's got to me that each version of indigo is kind of tailored to the OS it's running on. It kind of-- kind of looks like-- It looks like-- It looks appropriate on the OS it's running on. So you can change your gender so you can have a female voice talking to you, or if you want, you can have a male voice reacting to your questions. You can change the color, the backgrounds, and stuff like that. It seems pretty customizable actually. Right now, this version is optimized for English that's English-English, not necessarily American English, so you may be having trouble hearing me and also it's very loud in here right now, but you can change that. You can change that easily through the settings. You can go in and change it to US English so you can have the response, have a US accent or an English accent as well. Kind of an example of its kind of cross functionality is that you can ask it on Android like tell me about restaurants in Barcelona, it will give you a list of restaurants in Barcelona, sort it from Yelp, and it will give you like the top eight. You can pick one and then switch to your Windows Phone 8 and just say, "Give me directions there," and it will remember which restaurant you were interested in and give you directions to that restaurant. It's pretty kind of-- pretty cool. Indigo is available now on Android Windows 8 and on your browser at Hello-Indigo.com. Look for it on iOS in the first quarter of 2013. It's Eric Franklin again reporting from World Congress.
