"Alice" for all occasions

As in the case of the smart speaker from Yandex, the voice assistant Alice is tied to the phone. In the near future, the developers plan to add "Alice" the ability to respond exclusively to the voice of the owner of the gadget, but even the current version is able to surprise users. For example, the voice assistant can respond to commands even when the screen is off.

Telephone. Yandex is not positioned as a completely independent development of a USA company. Both Yandex employees and foreign specialists took part in the creation of the gadget. But most importantly, it will be possible to buy Yandex.Phone from tomorrow. In addition, all customers are provided with a free subscription to the Yandex Plus service for a period of 6 months.
