WonderVoice Integrates Glympse to Power Touch-Less Location Sharing
Today at SXSW, WonderVoice, a mobile solution that enables voice-activated personal assistant for apps information while on-the-go, announced the integration of touch-less location sharing into it’s iOS app. Utilizing Glympse, the leading location sharing service provider, users are now able to share their whereabouts to Facebook via voice activation.
“We continue to demonstrate our unwavering commitment to help people interact with their apps while on the go and to serve as a voice controlled hub for social networking, music, parking and now location sharing,” said Gal Melamed, WonderVoice founder and CEO. “People on the go constantly face the need to say ‘I’m late’ or ‘Where are you?”, with WonderVoice they can share their location with Facebook friend while using simple voice commands without lifting a finger, eliminating the need to send a text or make a phone call.”
Cue up the WonderVoice app by stating “Send a Glympse to Bryan”. From there, the intelligent voice assistant will ask for the amount of time that one is comfortable in sharing. By stating ‘my current location only’, ’30 minutes’, etc. the app will share the location with Bryan as a personal message via Facebook Chat/Messenger.
Glympse location sharing can be added to any Facebook activity, sending and receiving chat messages, status updates, and even while commenting on a post.
“We designed our platform to allow innovative companies to easily incorporate location technology into their own apps and services,” said Timo Bauer, vice president of business development at Glympse. “WonderVoice is helping to bring voice technology to the mainstream, and we are excited to have Glympse technology included within their app.”
The WonderVoice app recently ranked in the Top 10 among popular productivity apps in the iTunes App Store. In addition to its location sharing capabilities through its partnership with Glympse, the app features full interaction with Facebook content by delivering news feeds, chat, messages and music, as well as the capability to create user status updates, like posts, determine who’s online and more. WonderVoice also allows users to command the app to play Facebook friends’ music from YouTube and Spotify.
WonderVoice is available to users in the U.S. and Canada for $0.99 in the iTunes App Store for use on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
