BlackBerry 10 Voice Control & Native Apps Previewed On Video

posted by Justin Lisenby at on Jan 19, 2013 | Leave a comment

With only 11 days until the official unveiling of BlackBerry 10, there’s not much time to leak the surprises that RIM has planned for BlackBerry 10. The latest surprise to leak is a pretty big one, especially with Siri being such a big and helpful feature on iOS. RIM has prepared a completely new voice control feature for BlackBerry 10. To activate voice control, you just hold the play/pause button on the side, which is located between the volume up/down buttons. She will come up asking what she can do for you and then you can perform all sorts of actions just by speaking.

Voice control allows you to do things like send a text, call a phone number, or play a song, all by just pressing a button and speaking. This feature is much like Siri on iOS, with a similar voice and the familiar conversation bubbles that she uses. I’ll let you decide if copying Apple directly is a good or bad plan for RIM and BlackBerry 10. I’ll leave you with this, it certainly is an awesome feature and you should check out the video above to see for yourself. The video also features a walkthrough of some of the native apps like Twitter and Facebook, so that makes it worth a look, too.
