As you are aware, the vocal trigger word to get Miko 2 to listen to you is “Hey Miko“. This trigger was firmed up after getting Miko 2 to understand and respond to this trigger over thousands of kids and adults with different accents from India who were a part of the development process of Miko 2.
This helps Miko 2 to break down the word and better recognize when a new voice like your child’s tries to call it out. We have been able to achieve 90%+ accuracy in the accents tested in our trials over the past year.
However, as part of our continued research, we have developed a more accurate trigger word: “Hello Miko“. This has achieved a higher accuracy of response compared to “Hey Miko”. As a result of this, effective from January 22nd 2019, all Miko 2 units including yours at home will be vocally activated using “Hello Miko” instead of “Hey Miko”.
