Angie Hospitality introduces multilingual functionality to meet the global demand for voice technology and to simplify international travel. Guests and staff who desire to interact with Angie in Spanish, French, German or Chinese now have access to her full suite of voice control and touchscreen features. These additional language capabilities ensure that guests have the ability to communicate and make requests using their preferred language without the need to learn English voice commands.

Because Angie was built from the ground up for the hospitality industry, its language-processing technology goes beyond simply interpreting words to actually understanding their meaning in a hotel context. This focus on guest-oriented, natural speech was built into the architecture from the beginning, allowing hotels to implement a comfortable, convenient and easy-to-use voice solution. Additional language support, based on that same custom architecture, allows hoteliers and staff to communicate seamlessly with more of their guests.

“One of Angie's core principles is improving communication and connection between hotel staff and guests, which in turn improves guest satisfaction. Our additional language support not only improves communication, but will allow hotels to promote and engage in more appealing and effective ways to a greater range of guests, increasing both revenue and loyalty," Angie Hospitality CEO Ted Helvey said in a statement. “We are proud to be making breakthroughs not just in English, but in a wide range of languages that will continue to grow over time.”
