Xiaomi Introduced AI Voice Assistant Xiao in Mi Mix 2s Device
Chinese electronics major Xiaomi introduced the company’s own voice assistant called Xiao with Mi AI Speaker that was announced in July 2017
Xiaomi’s new AI assistant is available on Mi Mix 2s that was introduced in China in March 2018. Recently, Xiaomi posted a new video on its global YouTube channel showcasing the features of the Xiao Ai, which is similar to the Google Assistant. At the Mi MIX 2s launch, Xiaomi announced that Xiao Ai has been summoned 1.1 billion times, activated 11 million times daily, and commanded smart device features 310,000 times. It also said that Mi AI Speaker has become the hub of a smart home supporting over 40 different products.
According to the uploaded video, Xiao Ai can provide information such as the weather, traffic conditions, personal calendar reminders, and latest news. It can connect to and control a host of products including the Mi TV, Mi Box, Mi Robot Vacuum Cleaner, Mi Induction Heating Rice Cooker, Mi Air Purifier, Mi Electric Fan and smart lamps so that users can control them with voice commands remotely. Through products like Mi Smart Plug and Mi Smart Power Strip, non-smart home appliances can also be controlled with the Xiao Ai through Mi AI Speaker or supported smartphones.
However, Xiao Ai is currently available only in China. The company recently signed a partnership with Microsoft to bring Mi AI Speaker with Cortana to global markets. Furthermore, it is unclear that Xiao Ai will be avaible outside China to compete with Google Assistant, Cortana, and others.
