Digital assistants such as Google’s Assistant and Amazon’s Alexa are gaining popularity. Companies are therefore working hard trying to figure out how they can integrate voice-controlled features into their products to make them more interesting as well as easier to use.
Adobe has figured out a fun way to edit images on a mobile device. The company posted a video on YouTube showing a man editing an image on his tablet with his voice. Based on his commands, the app crops the image, flips it around, and even shares it on Facebook.
Before you get too excited, please note that this feature is not yet available. It is something Adobe is apparently working on and may release it eventually, although no time frame has been given so far.
Editing a photo on your mobile device with different voice commands sounds like a great idea, although we assume it does have its limitations, as it’s probably more suitable for basic editing tasks like the ones presented in the video. But then again, the average user doesn’t really need much more. For the most part, people are looking for simple solutions and features that bring them value and don’t have a steep learning curve.
Adobe’s idea has the potential to become quite popular among consumers if executed properly. But keep in mind that it’s a concept, so there’s no guarantee that it will eventually hit the market.
