Kakao has launched a kids-only AI service tailored to children’s eye level.
Kakao Enterprise announced on the 17th that it had installed the ‘Kids Mode’ function in its AI service ‘Hey Kakao’. It can be used on all Kakao smart devices such as the Heikakao app, Kakao Mini, Mini Hexa, and Mini Link.
How to use is simple. After installing or updating the Heikakao app through Google Play or App Store to the latest version, go through a simple sign-up process, and then turn on ‘Kids Mode’ for each device in ‘Kids Settings’ in the ‘Service Settings’ menu. It can also be applied to Kakao Mini, Mini Hexa, and Mini Link.
When Kids Mode is turned on, content suitable for children is selected and provided when listening to music with the Heikakao app/device, sending Kakao Talk by voice, or using voice content such as news/weather.
For example, if you command “play music” with Kids Mode applied, popular nursery rhymes are played. When you command “tell me the weather,” instead of providing numerical information such as general expected temperature, it provides customized information in a format suitable for children’s eye level, such as “the weather is clear and shiny” and “it is cloudy and difficult to see the sun”.
New content has also been added. ‘Animal Zoo Tour’ and ‘Animal Quiz’, which introduce animals, have been added, and a praise stamp function has been added to the existing ‘Praise’ function to help induce children’s correct lifestyle. You can give commands such as “I want to hear the sounds of animals”, “I want to tell you about animals”, “I want to go on a zoo tour”, and “I want to take a tour of the insect museum”.
“OO is doing 000 alone. In addition to the Kids Praise function that praises children when they say “Praise them,” you can also use existing kids contents such as nursery rhymes, fairy tales, and Small Talk in Kids Mode.
Along with the launch of Kids Mode, Kakao Enterprise also developed a ‘Kongsooni AI Talk Talk’ product in partnership with Young Industry, the No. 1 toy company in Korea. A voice processing technology/communication module was installed in Kongsooni doll, which is very popular among young children, and it was linked with Heikakao’s Kids Mode. You can utilize Heikakao’s Kids Mode function in Kongsooni doll, and additionally provide content exclusively for Kongsooni, such as Kongsooni related nursery rhymes/fairy tale contents and Kongsooni small talk.
Kakao Enterprise said, “We have taken into account that many children and children are using smart devices. We will continue to strengthen kids’ content and expand available services.”
