The developers of SNS “LINE” adds a new service of cryptocurrency rate, provided by Money Partners Co., Ltd, to the Smart Speaker “Clova (Clover)” utilizing AI (artificial intelligence), according to Japanese media report.
Clova is an intelligent personal assistant for Android and iOS, developed by LINE Corporation. AI Assistant “Clova” was announced at “Mobile World Congress 2017” which was held in March 2017. The first “Clova” appeared in October of the same year, then there was a smart speaker “Clova WAVE” in December. After that LINE Corp. released the second smart speaker “Clova Friends” with LINE characters, like Brown and Sally.
How does it work?
AI Assistant can easily announce the cryptocurrency rate after you turn it on by saying “Hey, Clova, Open My Wallet!”. Say “Bitcoin/yen” and get your current cryptocurrency rate. That is how “Clova” is supposed to work. Users can operate Clova by voice, and Clova will reply with voice. As the rates are changing within 24 hours, you can follow it when sitting in front of the PC, or cooking, or even bathing. The cryptocurrency pair is provided by the Kranken exchange. You can even add your favorite currency pairs.
“Clova Skill Store”
According to the official press-release, LINE Corp. opened up a new “Clova Skill Store”, where you can find the above-mentioned “crypto” skill. Clova currently offers users a wide variety of voice-controlled experiences, including playing music, reading out news, announcing the weather, and enabling users to exchange messages and make free calls with their family and friends using LINE. The Clova Skill Store gives users access to these third-party skills developed in the Clova Developer Center. There are 60 skills provided by 27 companies, including latest train statuses and various sermons by Buddhist monks.
What is important, you cannot use “crypto” skill via the PC, only from a smartphone or laptop. If you do not have the LINE Clova application, you will be transferred to the page of the application.
We would like to remind you that Japanese messenger “LINE” launched its own crypto exchange in January of 2018.
