Freelancer Messenger for Android one of the first 50 apps extended to Android Wear allowing James Bond style voice-to-text communications from your watch in any language using the Google API!
Freelancer.com today announced that it has launched an Android Wear compatible version of the Freelancer Messenger app in the Google Play store with a new messaging paradigm for wearable computing. Combining the mobility of wearable technology with the power of the Freelancer platform, this upgrade will allow people to collaborate no matter where they are, transforming the way the world works.
The Freelancer Messenger app, released in April 2014, has been a huge success, with a star rating of 4.2 and over 1,200 reviews. The Freelancer Messenger app allows users to communicate with their employers or freelancers while on the go and award and accept projects. The enhancements for Android Wear allows anyone with a compatible watch to speak like James Bond did into his watch. The app will transcribe into instant messages for forwarding on the Freelancer platform. The app has multilingual support, users can simply speak in any language that their phone is set to and the messages will get converted to text in that language using the Google Voice API.
Matt O’Kane, Director of Products, said they’ll be creating a core Android Wear experience with a Wear app to add additional features in the coming months, such as bidding for projects directly from Android Wear devices, streamlining the user experience on Freelancer.com.
Freelancer joins a selection of leading developers including Evernote, Trello and Duolingo, who released updates adding support for Android Wear since its release last week.
Matt Barrie, Chief Executive of Freelancer.com said, “Wearable computing is the next frontier of mobile. We’re excited to be launching our Freelancer Messenger app as one of the first applications in the Google Play store optimized for Android Wear. This app is pioneering the use of wearable computing, you simply speak into your watch and we’ll turn this into a message for the person you’re working with!”
Freelancer Messenger Android app is available on Google Play today.
