AAWP Insight #140: Phone Companion and voice assistants
Published by Rafe Blandford at
In AAWP Insight #140, hosted by Steve and Rafe, we have two main topics, both of which lead to some extended musings and generalised mobile discussion. First up, the news of Phone Companion for Windows 10 (and cross platform Cortana), leads us to think about Microsoft's general approach and the wider way we interact with computing devices. Second, Steve's roundup of voice assistants gives us an opportunity to talk more about voice input and intelligent assistants.
