Enabling ease of access to data on-the-go, Moneycontrol launched India’s first smartwatch application to have voice search for stocks enabled on the Apple watch.
With emphasis on accessibility, the app boasts of the functionality through which users can simply speak to their watch and get stock quotes immediately. All one has to do is open Moneycontrol on their watch, tap on the voice button, and say the name of their favourite stock and get all the relevant information right on their watch.
Network 18 Digital CPO, Avinash Mudaliar said, “The enabling of voice on the Apple smartwatch is our first step into the IOT space. We are launching the Android version in the next few weeks and working on some interesting voice enabled products from the network for platforms.”
The feature allows a user to get snapshots of the indices or their favourite derivative or the latest NAV of the mutual funds they were tracking.
Moneycontrol, which is part of Network18 group, offers comprehensive information, news and in-depth analysis across asset classes and pulls in a wide cross section of investors. They bring investors the latest business news and market updates along with articles, independent analysis of investment options and financial planning.
Speaking about the endeavor, Manish Maheshwari, CEO for Network18 Digital added, “Markets are quick, fast and on the go and through this foray into smartwatch apps, Moneycontrol is ensuring that’s exactly how it stays for its users.”
