Pebble Time Apps Will Now Have Voice Recognition Capabilities

Pebble has finally allowed third party apps to have voice recognition capability.

Pebble wants to introduce innovative changes in its smart watches. Now, Pebble is including a voice-related Dictation API into the Pebble SDK.

It will be accessible by both Android and iOS users. The new API will allow developers to create apps with voice recognition capabilities for Pebble Time watches.

Pebble did not develop this new technology on its own. Rather than following the footsteps of Google and Apple - who are the proud owners of their own smartwatches - Pebble opted for a well known company Nuance; which expertly deals in voice recognition tech.

Kean Wong, Vice President of Software Engineering at Pebble said in his statement that making voice ability available to developers and manufacturers will be beneficial for Pebble and will help expand the Pebble family.

He also said that such possibilities will give users an option to have applications that are more fun, instinctive, and simple to use.

The users who own Time and Pebble Time Steel smartwatches with Android phones are already capable of replying to the text messages and emails via voice directly.

The company also announced that the Pebble Time Round will get the voice recognition feature in the US on November 8.
