Oppo has unveiled its own voice assistant at an event in China. The company has also introduced the Breeno voice skills platform and smart service platform. This will allow developers to build on top of the Oppo’s assistant. This is similar to what Amazon does with Alexa voice assistant.
Oppo has joined the league of Google, Apple, Samsung, Xiaomi, and Huawei, all of which currently bundle their own digital assistants with their smartphones. However, Xiaomi and Huawei’s assistants work in China only. Huawei might launch its assistant internationally, though.
Breeno contains a total of seven modules which will work with each other to present relevant information to the consumers at the right time. As an example, the company said that if a consumer wakes up his or her smartphone at an airport, Breeno will automatically push the boarding gate information. It will also be able to provide flight-related information if needed.
The Chinese company says that Breeno is not only a digital assistant, but will also act as a multi-dimensional integration solution. It can work with the Internet of Things (IoT) devices, wearables, cars, and more. The company is already working with home appliance manufacturers such as Midea and Haier. As well as service providers like Baidu, Didi, and Taobao to offer compatibility with Breeno.
At this moment, it is unclear if the assistant will roll out internationally or just be a China-specific assistant.
