Leaked Yahoo! Voice Assistant App Actually A Prototype By Startup Robin Labs

Earlier today, we published a first look at what we believed to be a Yahoo!-made competitor to voice assistants like Google Now and Siri. The video, sent to us by an anonymous tipster along with screenshots showed what looked to be a very impressive app with an implementation similar to Facebook's Chat Heads, whereby a Y! icon would constantly float on the home screen waiting to be activated.

This evening, TechCrunch learned through a source "familiar with Yahoo's internal projects" that the app wasn't real, implying the video was nothing more than a really nice concept demo.

[New App] Motorola Contextual Services Is Yet Another App, Or Rather Framework, In The Play Store For Moto Devices

Since being bought by Google, Motorola has developed and released a number of apps into the Play Store, ranging from Touchless Control and its camera to the Moto G's FM Radio. This would be exciting stuff, except these apps remain limited to the devices they ship on, and Google Play availability just allows for quicker updates (which is still exciting, just for less people). Yet even for the people who own these Motorola devices, the latest app the company's dropped into the Play Store isn't going to do much to draw a smile.
