Boston info


The Boston Info voice app developed by the City of Boston is an initiative to connect with citizens and promote civic engagement. This civic voice app is a boon to the city dwellers as it provides timely updates on city services in addition to information on Covid-19 as well. The Boston Info voice app has been developed to be resourceful as the hour demands. Thus the efforts to enhance communication within their neighborhoods using artificial intelligence technology is worthy of mention.

Sharing critical public health information to the Boston residents is one of the highlights of this voice skill. The other worthwhile feature the voice app supports is informing its residents of the trash pick up time. Boston Info surely does take it up a notch for its residents by keeping them informed about the trash pick up status as and when required. All that the residents are expected to do is provide their address to stay informed on the pick up status. This interesting voice skill catering to the residents of Boston has been designed to boost civic engagement. This intuitive voice app seems to be resourceful as it helps the user navigate with considerable ease and access the supported features in the quickest possible time. The only unfavourable experience confronted while reviewing the skill was the instance when the voice skill shut off as soon as the required information was delivered. It would have been nicer if the voice skill sought if the user wanted any other information besides what was delivered.

The VOGO Voice team scores this skill a 3.85 out of 5 stars based on our rating system. Yet, you’ll have to try for yourself and see how timely the trash pick up status and Covid-19 alerts are, as well as whether the city updates are truly accurate and useful.
