Mykie: your kitchen assistant with voice recognition

With Mykie, Home Connect presents a concept that will not only make your daily chores easier, but also enrich it. Mykie stands for “My kitchen elf” – a personal assistant supporting you in your tasks and kitchen routine. Voice recognition allows you to operate Mykie through voice commands or alternatively via its touch display. Mykie answers questions, gives advice and provides support. It has, for example, instant insights about the food that is stored in the refrigerator, how much longer the roast should remain in the oven and even has the weather forecast for the weekend. The connected Mykie allows you to conveniently manage a whole range of home appliances. In addition, Mykie provides attractive services that allow you to organize your daily routine more efficiently or to interact with your friends and family. Mykie brings their users together virtually - joint cooking or the exchange of recipes gives you a new, exciting cooking experience. Get to know Mykie and learn about the vision Home Connect is pursuing with Mykie, the digital assistant for your kitchen.
