Although, Steve jobs has gone. But Apple is still alive with his innovative vision. Apple has started testing a new voicemail service. Which will not bring a big change, but it will certainly reduce the generation gap.
The voicemail-to-text service is already been launched previously by google with the name of Google’s Now and Microsoft with the name of Cortana. But they have faced a continuous big failure of the service due to its non-accurate results. However, there is still no news about the accuracy of the Apple Siri voicemail transcription service, but Apple seems to be very hopeful toward this feature.
The concept of the feature is simple yet very wise. Most of the old age people do not prefer text messages, but Youngers do. Likewise, younger age people don’t prefer voicemails and take text messages easy to read.
What is Apple’s Siri Voicemail transcription feature is all about?
The feature is to be launched officially in 2016 in the Apple’s latest iOS 10. The Siri Voicemail transcription feature will allow users to read their voicemails on the screen like a text message instead of listening to it.
The Apple’s Siri will answer the calls and transcribe voicemail messages into the text messages. The iClould service will then send that message to you on your iPhone.
Furthermore, if you are busy somewhere in the meeting or with anything and unable to receive the call, so the Siri voicemail transcription feature will tell the reason to the caller about why you could not receive the call and where are you. The feature sounds great.
Most of us like to leave a voice message because it takes a little time than typing a message. However, the truth is everybody of us like to read the message because it takes a little time to read. That is why Apple is trying to introduce a personal virtual secretary for us. The secretary is the proposed solution for this issue. It will empower users to send messages quickly as a voicemail and receive it as a text message. The Siri voicemail transcription service will be using iClould for it’s proper in time functionality. The process of voice-to-text conversion will take place in the iClould.
The Apple’s usual process sends voice data to the company server and then Siri transform spoken words into the text. iClould perform the same task to send voicemails to company’s server, where Siri will transfer the spoken message into a text message and then iClould will send it on your phone.
The voice commands is the good feature of Apple’s products. Furthermore, it is coming soon with an upgraded Siri in iOS 9. Which will be able to predict queries for you that what you want, based on your daily usage pattern. This all functionality will be performed within the application.
Time to Buy Apple’s Share in the Market
While most of the people would be so excited to listen about Siri Voicemail Transcription. They even would consider this as an opportunity. They might rush to the market to secure some shares. However, the feature would have a really good impact on Apple’s products, but it’s not necessary that it will increase its value in any case. I understand that most of the people will still not accept this feature even after its great success. Here are the reasons:
- People are not always in a comfortable situation to read the message.
- While driving the car, nobody read a text message.
- Instead, they prefer the voicemail.
- In emergencies, people are eager to listen rather than to read.
- People, sometimes want to dodge calls.
- They do not want the caller to know where they are.
- Siri Voicemail transcription might not able to dictate anyone’s tone.
But at the same time, texts are more convenient than voicemails. The texts are more interesting than voice calls. That’s why, youth are always posting on facebook, chatting and so on. The feature will really amuse the youth, who considers and prefer the text messages.
