Qualcomm announces Smart Audio Platform with Microsoft Cortana
Qualcomm has unveiled its Smart Audio Platform which now supports Microsoft Cortana at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
Just like Google Home and Amazon Echo, Qualcomm’s Smart Audio Platform is a smart speaker that lets you get things done easily since it is first equipped to support OEMs who want to add their own differentiating features, and includes a combination of Amazon Alexa, Qualcomm AllPlay Smart Audio Platform, and Google technologies. Apart from that, it comes with Multicore ARM, Qualcomm Hexagon DSP platform architecture, and Quick Charge.
“We are pleased to support the powerful capabilities of Microsoft Cortana Digital Assistant for smart speakers on our Smart Audio Platform,” said Anthony Murray, senior vice president and general manager, voice and music, Qualcomm Technologies International, Ltd. “Demand for voice control and voice-enabled services in the home is rapidly gaining traction, and our audio platform is now designed to offer greater flexibility for manufacturers wanting to deliver highly differentiated user experiences taking advantage of the power and personalization capabilities of Cortana.”
The Qualcomm Smart Audio Platform with support for Cortana is expected to be available in the first half of 2018.
