BB Dev Alpha voice commands

Press and hold the mute button. The BB Dev Alpha says: "Please say a command after the beep".

Things you can say:

Open browser
BB says: "What site do you want to go to?"
blackberry.com
Browser opens on that site

Search for <something>
BB says: "Updating information for <something>"
Various search results appear: apps, Bing, Help, YouTube, App World, Music, Wikipedia

Go to <site>
BB says: "Browsing to <site>"
Browser opens on that site

Go to google.com
BB says: "What would you like to find?"
Paris
BB says: "Performing Google Search for Paris"
Browser opens on Google, but no search is performed yet

What is the weather?
BB says: it is currently 20 degrees and partly sunny

What is the time?
BB says: it's 2:10pm

Find directions to Paris
BB says: "Updating information for Paris"
Bing maps appears centered on Seattle but no results are found.
Similar for things like "Where is the nearest Starbucks"

Call Maria
BB says: "I couldn't find Maria, please say the contacts name again"
...probably due to missing PIM apps, same with commands like "Send text message".

Dial <number>
BB says: "Do you want to call <number>?
Yes
BB says: I am calling <number>
(no SIM, can't test)

Make an appointment with Jon for tomorrow at 2pm
BB says: OK, here is your appointment with Jon on Saturday, July 21st at 2pm. Would you like to schedule it?
Yes
BB says: Scheduling your appointment. I've saved it in your calendar.

Move my 2pm meeting tomorrow to 4pm
BB says: "Here is your reminder. Shall I save it?"
Yes
Seems to incorrectly create a new reminder from 2pm to 4pm

Cancel my 2pm meeting tomorrow
BB just pings

Remember to call Jack
When would you like me to remind you to call Jack?
At 5 p.m.
Here is your reminder <blablabla> Would you like me to save it?

Play <something>
Please specify the playlist, album, artist, genre or title


Things it doesn't do (yet), or does incorrectly:
What is the time on Tokio?
What is the weather in Barcelona?
What is 3 times 33?
How much is 10 dollars in euro's?
Close browser / close AIR browser

Things it doesn't understand usually result in: "Do you want to search the web for ..."

Re: BB Dev Alpha voice commands

Did anyone manage to play something via "Play" command? I guess we need native music player app, or we can use something else?

Re: BB Dev Alpha voice commands

hi

to use voice command yo need to first update your software version ,by connecting your blackberry to pc and then opening blackberry desktop sofware . 

it will ask for an available update,then press update and it will update and reboat.after that you will be able to have this feature.

 

thankyou
