GoVoce VC100 is going to be the world’s first car charger that is going to come with Siri and Google Voice Control. As you can imagine, the very first thing you have to do is connect your smartphone with the car charger via Bluetooth and you will be able to use voice command to control your music, navigation, phone calls, messages, and other smart home devices while driving.
The user interface is very easy. You have to just manually plugin and connect to your smartphone and you are ready to go. If you own an android phone then you have to say “Ok Google, play some music” to listen to music and if you are an iPhone user then you have to say “Hey Siri, play some music”.
Likewise, you can order your voice assistant to bring you to the closest gas station! The best part is, everything is done through voice, you don’t even have to touch anything. You will be able to control any application that works with Google Assistant or Siri while you are driving.
Suppose you are driving your car with your family and one of your family members requests music, the voice assistant will recognize any human voice and work accordingly. With advanced far-field voice technology, even the man relaxing in the last sit of your car can order the voice assistant for something.
It must be noted that the technology is totally different from mobile phone technology. It comes with noise cancellation technology. VC100 can recognize your voice even in a noisy environment.
Likewise, you can make an urgent call while driving but make sure you don’t do that too much because driving while taking a call can come with hefty costs of accidents and police fines. Apart from the phone, you can send messages through text or Whatsapp or Wechat.
Imagine you are driving in some new place and you have no idea about the nearest gas station or petrol pump or eatery, you can simply ask the voice assistant to find the closest one for you. In the same manner, you will be able to order VC100 to turn on the air conditioner and set the temperature to your desired Celsius.
VC100 support multiple languages. In simple words, the voice command will understand and recognize every language that is supported by your handset. That’s plenty!
You can use VC100 without the internet or at a place with a very weak signal. VC100 comes with 2 USB ports with which, you will be able to charge your mobile phone or other USB devices. Each of these USB ports has 5V 3.4A power. VC100 can be used in almost t any car, as long as the car has a working power outlet and the potential to receive FM radio.
According to some rumors, all voice assistant listen to what we say and sends recordings back to the company for analysis which in turn improves voice recognition. VC100 has ensured that this will not happen as the charger will only send voice to the phone assistant after it hears the activation word, and for the rest of the time, it will be in a standby mode. It seems that the core goal for the GoVoce product is to help the driver to concentrate on driving with more voice control.
