Let's Build the Smartest Personal Assistant Together....
The XOWi Open Personal Assistant

XOWi is the world's only Open Platform Personal Assistant

Unlike Siri or Google Voice, XOWi is an open platform that enables anyone to add to its capabilities. You can teach XOWi a fact, a proverb, a joke, a riddle, a piece of poetry, a dialog snippet, or even how to interact with a complex web service.

Here are some of the things that the XOWi App can do, but that neither Siri nor Google Voice can:

  • Ask XOWi to quiz you about a topic
  • Ask XOWi to tell you a joke, a riddle, a proverb, or read you some poetry
  • Ask XOWi to read you an RSS feed
  • Ask XOWi to play a podcast
  • Ask XOWi to play your Spotify music
  • Ask XOWi what channel is playing a program
  • Interact with your SmartThings and Wemo Switches and Sensors
  • But most importantly: because XOWi is an open platform, have XOWi interact with any service in the cloud


The most exciting thing about the XOWi Personal Assistant is the fact that it is an open platform for users and developers to add voice interactions to it. It is thrilling to think how the community can come together to make a conversational entity gain an ever increasing number of skills.


Users of the XOWi App have access to a XOWi Web portal they log into to add Conversation Modules. Users can add quizzes, dialogs, jokes, facts, RSS feeds, and more, without writing a single line of code. Just fill fill text boxes and save.

Those who want to do more can add Modules that link to a web service. Jut point your voice module to your middleware, serve back JSON objects, and like magic, you now have a platform that lets you deliver voice dialog interactions with users.
