The Russian social network “VKontakte” announced the possibility of communicating with the voice assistant “Marusya” using the social network. “Marusya” will be able to play a song or podcast, find a community or user, and also call one of its friends.
“Marusya” can be found on the “Services” tab. To start a dialogue, just click on the voice assistant icon. “Marusya” works not only with the social network itself, but also with other services of the company, including food delivery, taxi, news and mail. The voice assistant can set reminders, record purchases, control a smart home, play games, search for recipes, and simply communicate with the user. A company or user will be able to teach Marusya certain skills: for example, ordering goods from VKontakte stores.
