Voice based interactions are rapidly gaining mainstream acceptance. And the current state of the art is to build skills or actions behind popular voice assistants like Alexa, Google Assistant. But apps are still the most popular channel for brands to connect to their customers. What if we could bring the convenience of Voice and marry them with the power of visual experiences that Apps provide?
This talk will highlight the fundamentals of designing & implementing Voice Augmented eXperiences in mobile apps. We will also cover how VAX is different from popular voice assistants like Alexa or Google Assistant.

What are the takeaways:
The fundamentals of designing & implementing Voice Augmented eXperiences in mobile apps
How VAX is different from building actions/skills for popular voice assistants like Alexa or Google Assistant.
How this next generational User eXperience can reduce drop offs, help in gaining new users, and allows easy information retrieval.

Who should attend:
Mobile app developers interested in learning newer technologies/methodologies
UI/UX designers interested in learning about newer paradigms and expanding their canvas of interaction

    Unexpected information. I would add in that ‘Exceptional merge is a delight to the eye’ too; that is the reason we have every single one of the styles and figure inclinations to make it is a wonderful try for readers. I truly value your hard-working work for bringing this useful. Education contain classic tasks like essay, task, look into article writing and a large number of the students can’t finish their assignment well inside the time. Feel free to side .
