Making mobile devices smarter, Audience enables voice commands (@venturebeat)

Anything that improves voice recognition quality across iOS or Android like this purports to do is obviously great and worth mentioning. I’ve actually started using Siri on my iPhone a lot more over the last 6-8 months. It’s fine for native tasks (e.g. turning on/off alarms, do not disturb etc.) but its utility for me would increase by orders of magnitude if it were able to play nice with apps. The ability to play a Spotify playlist, to use a common example, would be great for those of us who aren’t lucky enough to have a car that recognizes it and the ability to cycle through tracks using the car’s audio controls.
