Forthcoming Qualcomm Toq update will let you talk to your smartwatch
Soon, you will be able to issue voice commands to your Qualcomm Toq smartwatch. An upcoming software update is set to bring Nuance's voice guided navigation to the smartwatch. Dubbed Toq Talk, the app will allow you to dictate replies to text messages straight from your wrist.
The new software update will add a microphone icon next to the reply and call icons. Nuance's recognition engine also powers Siri, Apple's voice guided assistant. Voice functionality is only applicable to text messages for the time being, but the ability to reply to e-mails and other notifications should be available in due time. Voice command processing is done server-side, so you would need a working data connection for the feature to work.
