Meet Xiao Ai, Xiaomi’s voice assistant that’s going to run on the Chinese electronics and software company’s products like the Mi Mix 2S smartphone.
With Xiao Ai’s help, users can do a plethora of tasks relatively hands free and conveniently! For instance, you can take selfies, upload pictures to China’s major social media platforms like WeChat, set alarms, and do calculations all enabled through voice-commands. Xiao Ai can also link up with smart appliances like the Xiaomi smart rice cooker or smart light bulbs, letting you control, turn on, or turn off any of these appliances through the voice assistant.
Xiaomi’s Siri-like assistant is currently preloaded on the Mi Mix 2S and is also available on Xiaomi smart speakers. On the rest of the Xiaomi phones, it can be accessed after you update to the Chinese MIUI software.
While the Xiao Ai looks to be an incredibly useful and all-encompassing voice-assistant, Xiaomi does not have any plans to deploy its digital assistant to smartphones on the Indian or European market at the moment. Google Assistant will be on the phones sold in those region.
