Get the intelligence of Amazon Echo without the creepy stuff via the New Mycroft Open Voice Assistant and Smart Speaker. Just like other smart speakers, Mycroft lets you ask questions and make commands using your voice. But unlike Amazon and Google products, this speaker is totally open source. As a result, anyone can contribute to the software and add new features. Furthermore, there are no sinister profit-making motives. You won’t be targeted for ads based on what you say. In fact, Mycroft doesn’t even store your voice data. Along with strong privacy protection, this smart speaker is genuinely intelligent. It recognizes natural language, and it also hooks up to services like YouTube, Wikipedia, Facebook, and many more. Additionally, you can control Philips Hue lights and Wink devices via Mycroft.
