Goodbye, apps: Deutsche Telekom introduces AI phone

A German telecommunications company wants to free smartphones from apps by replacing them with an AI-based assistant.

“Like a concierge, the assistant understands your goals and takes care of the details,” Deutsche Telekom said. Together with Qualcomm Technologies, it presented an AI phone concept at the Mobile World Congress 2024.

An AI assistant is designed to obey voice commands and, for example, buy its owner tickets to a concert, help out with travel planning, shopping, and creating or editing photos.

The generative interface is powered by technology, which supposedly takes over the functions of a wide range of apps and can be controlled via voice and text.

"Artificial intelligence and Large Language Models (LLM) will soon be an integral part of mobile devices. We will use them to improve and simplify the lives of our customers. Our vision is a magenta concierge for an app-free smartphone. A real everyday companion that fulfills needs and simplifies digital life," Jon Abrahamson, Chief Product & Digital Officer Deutsche Telekom, said.
