By Telecom Lead Team: MoboTap, a mobile technology
developer and maker of Dolphin Browser, announced the release of Dolphin Sonar
for Android, a voice-control feature on its Dolphin Browser.
Dolphin Sonar allows users to search the Web and navigate
the browser using speech. Dolphin Sonar is part of the Dolphin for Android v7.4
update, which is now available for free in the Android Market worldwide.
With Dolphin Sonar, users can easily speak to search the
Web and navigate the browser without typing a word.
Dolphin Sonar brings a whole new dimension to mobile
browsing, transforming the way users interact with their phones.
“Our Gesture-based browsing function was a
game-changer in terms of the way people browse on their mobile devices, and
Sonar is the logical next step. Just as sonar is used by dolphins to navigate,
Dolphin Sonar interprets sound to get you where you want to be online,”
said Yongzhi Yang, CEO of MoboTap.
Dolphin Browser, which launched on the Android Market in
2010 and came to iOS last summer, has been downloaded over 12 million times
across both platforms.
In addition to unveiling Dolphin Sonar, other updates in
Dolphin Browser for Android v7.4 include moving the Webzine feature from the
browser to Dolphin’s Add-ons, reducing the app’s device fingerprint and making
browsing speeds even faster.
Users can activate Dolphin Sonar by tapping the
microphone icon at the bottom of the screen or shaking the phone. Also, they
can navigating the Web using Dolphin Sonar with simple commands such as opening
a new tab or moving to the bottom or top of the page.
