CNBC Action for Google
A CNBC voice assistant for Google
Much like with the Amazon Alexa, CNBC was asked to be a product launch partner for the rollout of the Google Assistant, a virtual assistant designed to compete with Amazon Alexa.
Working with a Product Owner, a technical lead and a team of developers, I led the design of the CNBC Action. I created the Voice User Interface (VUI) along with corresponding graphical user interface (GUI), wireframes, UI specs, and UX research. Our team received integral support from the Google Home team including technical support and best practices for VUI design.
The Design Process
We followed most of the same pathing as we did in designing for Amazon, but we wanted the CNBC Voice Assistant to be platform agnostic. There were subtle differences between the platform. We had less freedom in terms of the GUI due to the restrictions imposed by the Google API.
