Sonar uses Google’s built-in voice recognition API to translate your words to text, before using their Dolphin-specific backend to figure out what the words mean. Even in this initial build you get fairly impressive voice interaction. You can navigate to pages, add new tabs, and use popular social sites (“Facebook Kate Perry”) to search for people. You can also direct Sonar to “Yelp” things if you want reviews of a new restaurant or laundromat you are considering.
To help promote Sonar, Dolphin has released a YouTube video that suggests the new voice functions are so fun and useful that you’ll wish everything would respond to your questions this way. It’s fairly amusing and worth a minute and a half of your time, but if time is of the essence you can grab the latest version of Dolphin for Android at the market link below.
