A Stronger, Faster Siri Competitor Has More Control Over Your Phone [Video]

A Stronger, Faster Siri Competitor Has More Control Over Your Phone [Video]

The Utter! voice recognition app, currently in beta, can tell you your phone's battery level and reboot into the bootloader.

Emma Hutchings

New app Utter!, currently in beta, uses voice recognition to utilize the functionality of apps already installed on your smartphone. This is a different approach to other software and apps like the iPhone 4S’s voice assistant Siri, which use their own internal functionality to provide search results. As a result, Utter! can not only send messages and set calendar events but can also report on your phone’s battery life, reboot into the bootloader, change what your processor is clocked at, and much more.

Utter! is able to process your various requests and send them to different apps in order to retrieve answers, which should enable you to ask it a wider variety of queries. Check out the full-length video below for a demonstration:
