Slang Labs has declared receiving funding from the Google Assistant Investments program, along with 100x Entrepreneurs, Velu Murugan, Thomas George and their existing investor Endiya Partners.
With this announcement, Slang Labs becomes one of the first players in the In-App Voice Assistant space globally to be backed by Google.
“We are glad to be part of the Google Assistant Investments program. This investment by Google emphasizes the importance of Voice inside Apps and highlights the most significant technology trend for this decade – Voice. Voice is for this decade, what mobile apps were for the last decade, – the most disruptive and democratizing technology trend that enables millions of businesses and billions of people to transact better online and across multiple domains. We have seen an increase in demand for this technology during the pandemic and will continue innovating for a better consumer interface experience,” said Kumar Rangarajan, Slang Labs Co-Founder, and its Obsessive Dictator.
As technology grows more pervasive in people’s daily lives due to the ongoing pandemic, In-App Voice Assistant is a promising touchpoint for e-commerce and other interactions online. Through this technology, consumers will be able to do online transactions in their apps through the power of their voice, and in their preferred language.
Slang In-App Voice Assistant is the flagship product of Slang Labs helping enterprises make their apps faster, easier and more accessible.
The multilingual In-App Voice Assistant gets natively embedded inside the app as a multimodal overlay, allowing its users to transact with the app by just talking to it or by interacting with the visuals of the app directly.
More importantly in their language, even if the app’s visual language continues to be in English. Slang Labs’s unique VAaaS (Voice Assistant as a Service) delivery mechanism allows for the brands to integrate this experience inside their app without having to worry about the overhead of building one from scratch or maintaining them.
Slang In-App Voice Assistant is built to understand the needs of different domains and is easily customizable to suit the requirements of individual apps from that domain.
