Nuance Dragon Go! available for Android

Talk to your phone, with Nuance Android app

Nuance this week at CES announced that its free voice and language recognition app is available for Android phones and tablets. Dragon Go! has previously been available for iPhone.

Using Dragon Go!, Android users can interact with more than 200 services and apps using only their voice. In principle, Dragon Go! not only recognises what you are saying, but has the intelligence to understand what apps and services that would require you to use. It's like Siri's little sister, to coin a phrase that Nuance would almost certainly hate.

You can, for instance, ask for a song to be played, or for recommendations for somewhere to eat out.

Dragon Go! for Android is available now, for free, on the Android Market. We've not tried it, but can confirm that the iPhone version is great. We did see a demonstration of sorts, but this was less than impressive as the connectivity here at CES is no great. See also: Tech Finds Its Voice Control
