The cloud-based Tmall Genie X1 understands user comments in Mandarin for controlling smart home devices, streaming music and online shopping. While voice commands are being processed, it emits a light signal in the lower area, thus giving the user pleasant response. The purist design language and smooth lacquering lend the smart home assistant a friendly note, making it suitable for the entire family. With its integrated microphone and active noise cancellation, the device can respond to voice commands within a range of five metres.
