Good is not enough. Consumers today want instant, frictionless experiences offered by the likes of Google, Amazon and Netflix, on all their devices. Algolia Summer ‘19 enables any company to surpass consumers expectations with a fast, tailored and personalized search and discovery experience across any platform.

Conversational Search iPhone

Build great conversational experience faster than ever

Algolia Voice toolkit now includes native Speech-to-Text (STT) support across all platforms, with new JavaScript widgets for InstantSearch that handle native browser STT support. Combined with Algolia Voice Overlay for Android and iOS mobile apps, developers have all the tools to easily integrate Voice experiences on all their digital properties.

We’ve increased flexibility on entity matching, accounting for the differences in the ways people speak or misspeak while still delivering the search results users seek. For instance, after setting up synonyms and entity matching on color, category and type, the queries “black cocktail dresses” and “black evening wear dress” will return the same results: classy black dresses.

Mobile Experience

Deliver bettermobile experiences

New InstantSearch libraries for iOS and Android give complete control over the visual experience to developers – while still leveraging Algolia’s full capabilities. Use Algolia to power complex user interfaces and advanced experiences like hierarchical facets, advanced facets and filters on phone and tablet applications, with no compromise to your brand.

General Availability in September 2019.

New Kotlin API Client brings the full capabilities of our existing clients with some extras to make the most of the Kotlin ecosystem, the new language of choice for developing Android apps, giving developers another option for developing mobile experiences.

Smoother, faster experiences

We optimized our search algorithm and the engine CPU usage to improve performance and speed by 30% on filtered searches, reducing search response times by 7 to 17 ms, enabling customers to return relevant results even more quickly.

Mobile Experience

We’ve also reduced the time to index data by up to 10%, allowing marketplaces and media companies to shorten the time between new content publication and it appearing in search results.
