Earlier today, there was word of a leaked video which showed off the possibility of Yahoo’s plans for a voice-controlled personal assistant. Well, this particular rumor has more than meets the eye to it, as sources that are close to Yahoo have shared with The Verge that the app shown off in the leaked video itself was not developed by Yahoo.
A video making the rounds purporting to show a Yahoo competitor to Siri and Google Now was not developed by Yahoo, sources close to the company tell The Verge. The video, which was posted earlier today on Android Police, shows a Yahoo-branded personal assistant app running on an Android smartphone. But whoever made the video does not work at Yahoo.
