Blackberry Is Getting a Personal Digital Voice Assistant, Hoping You Would Care

The guys at Blackberry has recently announced the arrival of a digital personal assistant dubbed ‘BlackBerry Assistant’ to BlackBerry 10.3.

It is voice activated when I need it to be, and helps manage simple tasks on my device from searching my email and calendar, finding out what’s trending on Twitter, to sending trivia night invitations. The more I use it, the more it learns and adapts to me. The more I speak with it, the more tuned-in to my queries it gets. If you’ve had experience with other smartphone-based personal assistants, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how accurate BlackBerry Assistant is at recognizing your requests.

So basically with Blackberry Assistant, one can perform tasks without leaving the app they are currently on.

If I’m driving and I ask it to read my latest email message to me, it does so. I can then ask it to “Mark Unread” without having to enter the BlackBerry Hub. If I’m in a meeting and I type “Remind me to follow up with Matt about our whiteboard session,” it builds me a reminder note that I can save without leaving the Assistant.
