The Chinese company Xiaomi introduced the voice assistant Xiao AI, which is similar in functionality to the American Apple Siri and Google Assistant. However, the newcomer is adapted specifically for the Chinese market, its features, in addition, while the assistant speaks and understands only the local language. The demo video, accompanied by English subtitles, shows in detail how Xiao AI is easily applicable in everyday affairs: alarm clock, notes, weather, controlling smart technology, communicating in the local WeChat messenger, solving arithmetic calculations, translating unfamiliar text into Chinese, and so on – everything is done by user’s voice commands. According to Xiaomi, the Xiao Ai voice assistant is created specifically for branded smartphones, and it is already preinstalled in the recently announced frameless flagship Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S. For the assistant to appear on other Xiaomi smartphones, you will need to update the MIUI firmware. Whether the company plans to adapt Xiao Ai to other regions where Xiaomi has a strong market presence is not known.
