Almond can interact with your devices and your accounts - do actions on your behalf, perform queries and set up reminders or monitors. It stores your credentials securely on your phone so that you won't have to log in anywhere, anymore.
The Almond platform was updated to 1.7. This brings a number of improvement in robustness and natural language understanding. In particular, it is now possible to refer to devices by name, and to frequency-based timers.
