If the reports turn out to be true, Nokia will join the likes of Google, Apple, and Microsoft who already have their own virtual assistants in the form of Google Assistant, Siri, and Cortana respectively.

The company has recently filed for a trademark in the European Union for the name “Viki”, which appears to be a digital assistant from the description, as per a report by MSPowerUser (via GSMInfo.nl). In the description associated with the service under the name, the company said, “Software for the creation and monitoring of mobile and Web digital assistants working with knowledge and combining all data sources into a single chat and voice based interface.”
