Users of the Qualcomm Toq smartwatch will notice that their devices are getting a new update. This update will introduce a nifty little voice-to-text feature right within the device, allowing users to dictate replies for messages received. This feature however will require a working data connection as it has to go through their servers. Although the functionality is only limited to text messages at the moment, Qualcomm hopes to add support for email replies in the future.
This feature comes from Nuance which is also renowned for powering Siri on Apple’s range of products, so this is clearly a major update. Qualcomm calls this particular feature ‘Toq Talk’, keeping it very simple and straight forward. It’s good to see that the developers are still striving to bring new features onto what is arguably one of the best smartwatches available in the market today along with the Pebble and the Samsung Gear Fit.
