Since our preview launch back in December, followed by the announcement of our funding round and the release of Roger on Android, we've been hard at work trying to keep up with all the feedback and requests from a seemingly global community that, like ourselves, believes we should talk more often. Today, we're taking another major step in making voice ubiquitous, as Roger evolves into the first-of-its-kind voice platform, completely integrated with the services you use everyday. This is a very special milestone for our team. I can clearly remember our discussion over dinner, the very first day we began building Roger. That question remained with us throughout the journey.

"Alexa, what time is my next train to work?" "There is a 20-minute delay. The next train departs from Berlin Central Station at 9:42 and will arrive at Westkreuz at 9:54."

Conversational interactions like this one will undoubtedly be part of our future. Tech giants like Amazon, Google, Apple, and Microsoft are heavily investing in the race to become the leader in voice technology. Voice interactions have been catapulted into the limelight in the past year, but why is this decade-old technology only now becoming a big deal?
