What can Abena AI do?

Abena AI in many ways works like Siri and Google Assistant.

Apart from telling you the weather forecast and setting your alarm, Abena AI can also:

  • tell you what is trending on Twitter and Ghana news
  • buy and transfer airtime and Mobile Money
  • set reminders and timers
  • control your smart devices example, bulbs and speakers

Download the app on Google Play Store.

How to use Abena AI

Like other voice assistants, you can speak out commands to Abena and expect a response.

For instance, saying Abena, Dɛn na ɛkɔ so wɔ twitter? will give you a live report of the trending topics on Twitter.

A few other commands you can try are;

  • Abena, ɛndɛ nsuo bɛ tɔ?
  • Aka me credit sɛn?
  • Tɔ credit ma me
  • Sɛndi sika
