By partnering with major mobile phone brands operating in India and the South East region as a whole, Kika has brought out AI-powered communication technology
Kika Tech has brought out its AI-enabled communication technology for Android smartphone users in India. It has introduced a default keyboard for offering the users with industry-leading communications technology, powered by artificial intelligence (AI). It has partnered with major mobile phone brands like Xiaomi, Vivo, OPPO, Lenovo, and Tecno to cater to the users.
Bridging the global digital divide
Commenting on the partnerships, Bill Hu, CEO of Kika Tech, said, “These partnerships underscore our commitment to bridging the global linguistic divide in the digital age.” He added that there had been a longstanding insufficient support of local languages in the burgeoning India and Southeast Asia mobile market. Kika, by supporting over 200 local languages, is aiming to reach out to the users who are willing to converse in their native languages.
With years of practice in natural language understanding, deep learning, speech recognition and other AI technologies, Kika has launched a self-developed AI-powered engine to fully support India’s local multi-language needs, enriching locally created multimedia content and providing the ultimate mobile communication experience for Indian users in local languages, thus preserving linguistic richness and diversity.
Features and Benefits
Kika’s customized keyboard for mobile brands supports 22 official and 18 non-official Indian languages, including Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Punjabi, Gujarati, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Urdu. Each language is supported with AI-powered text prediction and autocorrection and provides ease of switching from local characters to Latin letters. It also supports transliteration where users can type in a mixture of English and their local languages all with one keyboard.
With thousands of custom themes, GIFs and stickers in the Kika Keyboard store, Android users can enjoy customized and localized content with comprehensive choices. For gamers, Kika supports a floating keyboard mode when playing games, enabling the game interface to be as visible as possible, guaranteeing the best gaming experience. It is also perfectly adapted to different models with screens in varying shapes.
