RumorTT: Amazon acquires True Knowledge, the creator of a Siri-like voice assistant app

RumorTT: Amazon acquires a company behind a Siri-like voice assistant application

Amazon have reportedly acquired True Knowledge, a company behind a Siri-like voice assistant Evi. True Knowledge are "a British startup with a natural langage search engine developed in university labs" according to unnamed sources, reports TechCrunch.

TechCrunch haven't received confirmation on this just yet, which is why we've stamped it with a RumorTT tag. But, according to TC, Amazon have paid around $26 million to acquire the app, so if this does end up being confirmed, we could see future Kindle products feature a Siri-like voice assistant.
