Dominos Pizza announced today that it is launching a new voice ordering feature via its iPhone and Android apps. The new feature is powered by Nuance’s Nina Mobile voice speech recognition, speech synthesis, and natural language technologies. The company says the feature will give the same experience as ordering from a human, as users will be able to speak an order, and quickly add items to their cart. (Right, so just as frustrating then? – Ed.)
“There will be a day where typing on keyboards or with thumbs on mobile devices will come to a close; we want to be the ones who continue to advance the technology experience – hand-in-hand with our customers,” said Patrick Doyle, Domino’s Pizza president and CEO. “Our mobile app users who are a part of this launch are truly helping set the foundation for the innovations of today, that will soon enough become the standards of tomorrow.”
The updated app rolls out in beta format today, and users will be able to browse menus, coupons and navigate through the app using your voice. The feature is available in the updated iOS app.
The updated Domino’s Pizza iOS app is available FREE in the App Store. [DIRECT LINK]
