Global food and beverage leader Nestlé has recently partnered with China’s online retail leader JD to launch China’s first AI family nutrition smart speaker.
The device – Nestlé XiaoAI – is the first attempt that Nestle has carried out in conversational interface, which combines smart speaker technology with nutrition and health knowledge.
Nestlé XiaoAI is built on JD’s best-selling DingDong smart speaker system, and features Nestlé’s custom recipes, music, and nutrition advice. In addition to Nestlé XiaoAI, all of DingDong’s speakers will also contain this Nestlé content. A limited edition beta version of Nestlé XiaoAI is now available on JD.com.
