Voicebot Podcast Episode 13 – Jan König, CEO of Jovo Talks Multi-Modal Voice App Development

Jan König is CEO of Jovo, a company providing a framework and tools for building robust multi-modal apps that include voice. Along with Alex Swetlow, Jan founded Jovo in 2017, recently graduated from Betaworks Voicecamp accelerator and released the company’s first product. Voicbot covered the launch of that new product in detail. It is a framework for building voice apps once and running them on any platform.

Jan discusses how he and Alex came to their idea for Jovo and the premise behind building voice-first apps that are consistent, continuous and complementary across UI surfaces — yes multi-modal 101. We also talk about Amazon and Google’s latest releases and how technology adoption differs between NYC and Berlin. Get the German perspective on voice and AI in this week’s interview with Jan König.
