Maluuba for Windows Phone 8 updated, adds sports and TV searches

Maluuba is a Siri styled app for your Windows Phone 8 device that helps take voice commands to a new level. You can find out what the weather is like, find a restaurant, check movie show times, create reminders and more just by voice commands. Maluuba has announced an update to the app, taking it to version 1.0.2, that brings two new features into the mix that deals with sports and television.

Sports integration for Maluuba allows Windows Phone users to ask for live game scores, see upcoming schedules and see league standing for the NBA, NHL and MLB.

Television integration allows users to search current and upcoming television schedules in their area by show name, genre, or channel. Maluuba will have search support for over one thousand cable and satellite providers across North America.

The update only extends the reach of Maluuba and the potential voice commands have with our Windows Phone. Now if we can only find a way to get college football scores into the mix.

Maluuba is a free app for our Windows Phone 8 devices. The update should be pushed out shortly and if you haven't given Maluuba a try, you can find it here in the (opens in new tab) Windows Phone Store.

  • Im first and i have Nokia Lumia 920
  • I'm second and I have a Nokia 822
  • It's Maluuba vs. Indigo. I have Indigo installed now, but sports info is a big thing that they are missing.
  • I'm fourth and I have a Samsung Ativ S
  • Between this and indigo, which one guys?
  • If Indigo has plans for Windows 8 then definatly Indigo. Coz Indigo app follows your profile on every device it is installed.
  • I would say Maluuba, due to its interface (i enjoy the UI), however, i think Indigo has a slight few more features. Its sort of a user preeference thing. Maluuba will probably improve in the future, and Indigo could update the ui in the future.
  • I disagree. Maluuba can do movies, tv, and sports while indigo can't do any of those.
  • To developer: Please release this app in Indonesia! :)
  • it is a free app, you could just change your region setting into US region
  • It shows no such app found in store else its not downloadable from WPCentral's link to app in the store... Anyone facing the same issue. Or its not yet available for India..??
  • Just faced the not found. I think it should be because Maluuba isn't actually published on every country store. I am in Italy and no app unfortunately.
