As many of you have already noticed : Nabcasts are back !
They work the same way that they did on the old site and we are looking at several ways that we can improve the service to make it more user-friendly. (But, what exactly IS a Nabcast ? Go here to find out : http://help.nabaztag.com/fiche.php?langue=3&fiche=26)
To subscribe to your fellow Nabaznauts’ audio creations, head on over to Nablife / Nabaztaland.
So, when are you going to make your OWN Nabcast ?Voice Recognition
The beta test phase that we launched a few weeks ago is now over (thanks to the 2000 beta testers !) and the service is now officially open to everyone (well, to those rabbits that have a bellybutton) !
To find out what words tag/tag recognizes and how to speak to your rabbit, check out this guide :
As you can imagine, we are not stopping here. Nabaztag/tag (being a smart little nipper) is going to progressively learn new words and be able to unleash new services. There are already a few new words that he recognizes, it’s up to you to discover them Webradio
For now, the internet radio can only be played by voice recognition (keyword : radio) and when activated, plays a random station.
It won’t be like this for very long, soon you will be able to choose the radio stations that you want to hear…. and define their voice commands.Podcasts
We are in the process of testing this service and it will be available by the 14th of February.IN ADDITION, WE WILL BE OFFERING OUR FULL SERVICES FOR FREE FOR ANOTHER TWO MONTHS (UNTIL APRIL 14th) !!!!!!
So not only will the Valentine’s Day be a celebration of love, it will also be a great day for Nabaztag !
In essence, we are embarking on a new life with our rabbits which promises even more personality, new services, and new content !
