We're no strangers to the many uses of Vlingo around here and we love it when they email us lettings us know about all the new stuff they been working on. As described from within their press release, they've introduced a new feature with their latest release called Actionbar:
Vlingo will introduce a new feature called the “ActionBar,” that enables Android users to type or speak commands to do all of the things they would normally do with Vlingo. Vlingo brings the same adaptation and predictive intelligence used for voice recognition to typed commands with the ActionBar, allowing users to initiate actions when it’s not as convenient speak to their phones – like on a noisy bus or quiet conference room. In this release, Vlingo also has integrated with several consumer companies that will allow them to find available hotels, buy movie tickets and make dinner reservations - quickly, easily and safely.
Those companies referred to are KAYAK, Fandango and Open Table to be precise. The latest Vlingo Assistant is now available in the Android Market for devices 2.0 and above. Download and a video of the new offers is after the break.
