VK (formerly Mail.ru Group) announced the launch of a new functionality for the Marusya voice assistant.
One of the innovations was the ability to build scenarios for using smart home devices. Now users will be able to combine the necessary smart devices into a bundle and set them to turn on and off one by one – Marusya will remember this sequence and will be able to repeat the specified scenario in the future.
In addition, Marusya can now manage new Xiaomi devices. According to the press service, Marusya already knows how to manage more than 30 Xiaomi smart devices in the categories of smart lamps, sockets, fans, air purifiers and humidifiers, as well as kitchen appliances.
The number of new Xiaomi smart devices running Marusya is constantly growing. Now, with the help of a voice command, you can easily turn the robot vacuum cleaner on or off, set the volume, or find out the charge level of Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2 Pro, Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2S, and Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2 Lite devices. You can also control the operating mode of the Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2 Ultra.
In addition to new models of robotic vacuum cleaners, Marusya has learned how to manage the Mi Smart Air Fryer, a new category for a voice assistant. With the help of “Marusya” you can set the desired temperature of the fryer and further adjust it depending on the readiness of the dish.
