Hi {{first_name}},
Every week we collect the developments in the Voice domain into a single list of things you shouldn’t have missed. But before we dive into the news, here’s more on the other channels we work on.

🚀 Jovo 3 launch
Jan König reached another milestone this week: he launched version 3 of the Jovo platform:
Jovo, the most popular framework for cross-platform voice apps, launches version 3. From a single code base, you can now build voice experiences that not only work with Alexa, Google Assistant, Samsung Bixby, Twilio Autopilot - even mobile phones, the web, and hardware like Raspberry Pi. This new release is a significant step as it now allows businesses to build their own custom voice assistants.
It’s quite a feat, and a big step from version 2. Voicebot did a nice article on the launch.
We had Jan in one of our early Voicecast episodes, and I (Sam) am pleased to say that we’re half way through recording a series of interviews around Multimodality for the SpaceRace. On March 13th the first episode will go live with nobody less than Karen Kaushansky. We’ll post links to the episode once it airs. Congrats on the launch Jan and Alex!

Whole-heartedly agree with @einkoenig on this. Voice is growing way beyond smart speakers. #VoiceFirst #multimodal

@Talks2Bots Maybe. I think chat (conversational AI) is a platform shift without an interface shift.

Ie every major platform shift had an interface shift take place years after that allowed app ecosystems to thrive.

Think PCs (CLI -> GUI), mobile (keyboard -> touch), CAI (chat -> voice).
