Nuance’s Dragon Mobile Assistant for Android has been updated with a number of new features. While the Dragon Mobile Assistant may not be the best tool of its kind in the market, it certainly is the best choice for Android users who don’t have access to Google Now.
The updated version of the Dragon Mobile Assistant is being touted as version 3.0 of the software. The new version includes all the regular perks that come with Dragon Mobile Assistant’s former versions – the ability to look up weather, search the web and other similar tasks using your voice commands.
However, the new version also packs some new features. For instance, if you want to share your current location with a friend, you can ‘tell’ Dragon Mobile Assistant to do so. It will text your friend with a link to your location. Similarly, if you have to take a lot of conference calls but are annoyed at dialing them and providing passcodes, you can pass this responsibility to the Dragon Mobile Assistant.
It can automatically dial into a conference call, judging from the information provided on your calendar entries. In doing so, you can save a lot of hassle. Moreover, the new version also lets you have the text messages read aloud to you if you’re not exactly in the mood of reading them yourself. You can choose ‘hands-free’ reply to the message, thanks to the Assistant.
In all, version 3.0 of Dragon Mobile Assistant is a nifty, little package equipped with many cool features. But when pitted against the likes of Google Now or Siri, it is a lot behind.
The Dragon Mobile Assistant app supports smartphones running Android 2.3 and above. So if you own an Android smartphone that is not equipped with Google Now, it is actually a good tool to have. You can download the latest version from the Google Play.
