New API and Updates Expand Nuance Voice Recognition to More Pebble Users (Release Notes)

You speak and we listen 🙂

Today, we’re giving Pebble developers the keys to unlocking awesome voice-powered apps for all Pebble Time, Time Steel, and Time Round users. Powered by Nuance, our new Dictation API makes Pebble apps that use voice recognition from the wrist possible. From keeping in touch hands-free to controlling smart homes and connected cars, the possibilities are endless. We’re excited to see what developers build with this sweet new tool.

The voice features from apps using our API can be enjoyed by all users—iPhone or Android—with a compatible Pebble smartwatch. Since Pebble Time users on Android already enjoy sending quick voice replies, we’re glad that those on iOS will soon enjoy voice-recognition apps as well.
