It was a few months ago we told you guys about Robin, a voice assistant app for Android that looked to give Siri a run for her money (don’t they all?). The app was met with good reviews and recently, Robin’s been given a complete overhaul with new version 2.0. She’s now smarter, listens better, and has been given a visual facelift. Here’s the all new feature set for 2.0:

  • Hands-free email and SMS narration
  • Texting by voice
  • Proactive mode : listen to text messages as they come.
  • Proactive traffic alerts (Phase one): get ask for direction and get prompted about traffic delays as you go.
  • Introducing Robin’s news room: headlines delivered by a duo of news anchors!
  • Also, personal newscast from your Facebook and Twitter
  • UI redesign.

If you guys wanna take her for a spin, “Robin, the Siri challenger” can be found in the Google Play Store free of charge. Let me know if she plays nice.
