Siri-like Voice Commands on BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha (Video)

siri-blackberry-10-universal-search

Yesterday, Research In Motion released an OS update to the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha. While some were struggling with problems getting the new update installed, others were lucky enough to begin playing with the update and finding out all of the new features.

One feature stuck out, a voice command function with an operator whose voice sounded terrifyingly similar to Siri. Could RIM be using the same technology from Nuance? Using the voice commands also allow you to access the new Universal Search feature. Check out the video below and let us know what you think, but be mindful that this is still very much in beta and will likely be fully revamped in its final release.

Shout out to J. Duke from OSBB for telling me about it!
