Mozilla is reportedly working on a new browser that operates very differently—through voice command. The project is called ‘Scout’ and was revealed via an agenda item for an all hands 2018 meeting taking place in San Francisco. This was then reported by CNET.
The agenda reads, “With the Scout app, we start to explore browsing and consuming content with voice. This talk will discuss the architecture and key components needed for a voice platform, the required capabilities of those components and the challenges of working with the limitations and confines of existing platforms.”
Looks like Mozilla is hopping on the concept of voice-controlled platforms, as they have become increasingly more common, especially since the launch of voice assistants.
