Hello backers,

This is a quick update to check in as it's been awhile.

Over the past six months, we've transitioned away from consumer hardware to provide a new service called Ubi Cloud - making it easier for any consumer hardware brand to voice enable their devices. More detail on it is at

In case you haven't used your Ubi in awhile, we'd encourage you to visit and checkout tips and support for the Ubi. We'll post more updates there.

There's been a lot of progress since we launched our Kickstarter campaign over three years ago. When the Ubi launched, environment-based voice interaction was just a concept and now, major players (and many startups) are filling up the space. We're excited about what lies ahead! You can check out some of the new devices like the Ivee and Angee with their crowdfunding campaigns.

We look forward to continuing with updates and progress.

April Updates


Dear Backers,

We've been continuing to develop and push updates to the Ubis over the past months and will be announcing soon a new interface for building voice interaction with the Ubi. We're also moving towards a platform that will allow voice interaction to extend far beyond the current Ubi.


Part of these updates have included updates to how we handle security threats. From the onset, we treated privacy and security as a major concern in deploying the Ubi. If there's something with a microphone in our homes, we want to make sure it cannot be used in a harmful way.

Some of the changes we have coming up include enhancements to:

  • Password protection 
  • Encryption of data that's collected and stored 
  • Service continuity

With the Ubi:

  • No audio is streamed until you say "OK Ubi" and only while the Ubi is turned green 
  • Pressing the Ubi button mutes the microphone at a hardware level for enhanced privacy 
  • The Ubi trigger word is processed locally

Logitech Harmony

We're now integrated with the Logitech Harmony hub! We'll be updating your Ubi portal accounts to reflect this new integration shortly.

New Ubi App on iOS!

This coming Monday, we'll be launching a new app on iOS that allows for the fastest, easiest way of sending voice to contacts and home. Stay tuned!

Looking forward to bringing you more!
