Reliance Jio Phone will be pushed with a refreshed version of Google Assistant. According to Industry analysts, this is the first time the AI-based voice-enabled assistant is reaching a feature phone. Interestingly, the Jio Phone ships with their own voice assistant which is capable of accepting commands.
According to Google, the Google Assistant special version exclusively developed for Jio Phone will be made available in English and Hindi. It will be capable of responding to voice-based search queries. Even though Google has announced the launch of the special Google Assistant, we don’t have any confirmation about the expected launch date.
During the Google for India event, Google demonstrated the functioning of the Google Assistant for JioPhone. The demo revealed that the voice assistant is capable of delivering search results, music playback, the text message including all voice commands in English and Hindi. It remains to be seen as to whether regional languages will be added to the Assistant engine.
Commenting on the development, Gummi Hafsteinsson, Product Management Director, Google disclosed that the Assistant will be able to call, text, play music, videos including accessing other apps from within an entry level JioPhone.
On the specifications front, the Jio Phone features a 2.4-inch display, dual-core processor, 512MB RAM, 4GB expandable internal storage, 2000mAh battery loaded with KAI OS. The advantage of the Jio Phone is the ability to provide support for 22 Indian languages including the ability to mirror content from the phone to the TV using a supplied proprietary cable. Moreover, the JioPhone comes with a wide range of apps such as JioCinema, JioMusic, JioXpressNews, JioMag, and JioMusic.
Reliance released Jio Phone a few months back. The handset was made available via special pre-order for Rs. 500. The balance Rs. 1000 should be paid at the time of delivery. After three years, the amount of Rs. 1500 will be refunded upon surrendering of the phone.
