(NEW YORK) -- BlackBerry unveiled its answer to Apple’s Siri and Microsoft’s Cortana on Wednesday -- and decided to go with a straightforward name: BlackBerry Assistant
The voice-enabled personal assistant will run on devices with BlackBerry 10.3 and can manage everything from a user’s business life to their social life.
“The more I use it, the more it learns and adapts to me,” BlackBerry social media marketing lead Donny Halliwell said in a blog post.
“If you’ve had experience with other smartphone-based personal assistants, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how accurate BlackBerry Assistant is at recognizing your requests,” he added.
