Xiaomi has posted a new video on its YouTube channel, the video showcases the features of Xiao AI voice assistant. The Xiao AI is similar to the Google Assistant. Last year the Xiao AI was introduced with the Mi AI Speaker. And, it is also available in the Mi Mix 2S that was introduced in China last week.
The posted video shows that Xiao Ai works almost like Google Assistant. As, you can see it gives information such as the personal calendar reminders, weather, traffic conditions and latest news. It can also control a host of products including the Mi Box, Mi TV, Mi Robot Vacuum Cleaner, Mi Air Purifier, Mi Induction Heating Rice Cooker, Mi Electric Fan and smart lamp. You can also control them with voice commands remotely.
The Xiao Ai can also control the products like Mi Smart Plug, Mi Smart Power Strip and non-smart home appliances through Mi AI Speaker or supported smartphones. Xiaomi said that Mi AI Speaker has become the hub of a smart home supporting over 40 different products. In fact, at the launch of Mi MIX 2S, Xiaomi said that Xiao Ai has been summoned 1.1 billion times, activated 11 million times daily, and commanded smart device features 310,000 times in just eight months.
Xiaomi has recently signed a partnership with Microsoft to bring Mi AI Speaker with Cortana to global markets. But, currently the Xiao AI is available only in China and we are not sure when we can see Xiao Ai outside China to compete with Google Assistant.
