Celia is now integrating Huawei’s growing ecosystem. The digital assistant currently supports English, French and Spanish languages. Moreover, it’s currently exclusive to the UK, France, Spain, Chile, Mexico, and Columbia. It works similarly to all other assistants in the market. That means that you can set alarms, use the assistant and phone’s camera to translate text, search images, and products, and check the weather. To trigger the assistant you can use the “Hey Celia” command or hold down the power button.
Huawei’s Celia will be further improved and its support will be added to several markets in the future. It may also reach Honor devices in the coming months. Moreover, we expect to see it being integrated in more smartphones including budget devices. After all, Google Assistant is available for every Android device.
