Japan’s Docomo focuses on its Siri-like services by giving developers access to more features

docomo shortWe’ve written in the past about Docomo’s development of its Siri-like services — such as Shabette Concier, launched in February 2012 — and now Japan’s biggest mobile operator is upping its proposition to developers with plans to extend the APIs for its “conversation-oriented applications” from November 11 .

Docomo already offers APIs for voice-recognition and question-answering, but that will be furthered to cover conversations, opening up even more potential to engage with Shabette users.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

In a world where operators are happy to have Apple, Google and others provide headline services, Docomo cuts a different figure: devoting time and significant resources to develop its own offerings for its 61 million customers.
