“Mail.ru Mail” launched a website with New Year’s greetings, where the smart column of the company with the voice assistant “Maroussia” is demonstrated for the first time.
On this site, users can generate a video of congratulations in which Santa Claus presents a column to the audience: “Meet, this is my assistant Maroussia.”
On November 27, 2018, Vedomosti learned that Mail.Ru Group began to develop its own voice assistant and speaker. Then the company said it planned to integrate an assistant into all products, where it would make sense. Four months later, at a meeting with Dmitry Medvedev, the company first demonstrated Marusya.
