Currently, there are many voice assistants on the market. Initially, they have been developed for other purposes. But the manufacturers decided to bring them wider usage opportunities. This is true not only for Google Assistant, Siri, Bixby, and Alexa but for those that come our way from China. In fact, there are a few assistants that worth our attention. If you are aware of, we are talking about Xiaomi’s Xiao Ai, VIVO’s Jovi, etc. Among them, the former voice assistant is very popular as it’s used not only on Xiaomi smartphones but on other products as well. They include smart speakers, TVs, TV boxes, alarm clocks and so on. Unfortunately, there are still too many Xiaomi products lacking this feature. Some of them have been written off from the list.
