Siri iOS 9

Last week, Google launched Amazon Echo rival which is dubbed as Google Home. Now, according to a new report from The Information, Apple is working on its own version of Echo like voice home assistant.

The report goes on saying that the voice-activated device will be powered through its virtual assistant, Siri. Amazon’s Echo is powered by smart assistant Alexa. Similar to Amazon Echo, Apple’s home assistant will allows users to take out day to days tasks like checking the weather, set an alarm, playing music, control smart home devices and so on. The device will be able to perform these activities as it will come equipped with a speaker and microphone.

Apple will soon open up Siri to developers with new software tools that will allow Siri to tap into more third-party services. The Software Development Kit (SDK) is expected to be available as soon as WWDC that is scheduled in June.
