Volley Debuts Innovative Voice AI Game Jeopardy! on Roku

Volley Debuts Innovative Voice AI Game Jeopardy

Jeopardy! goes voice-controlled with Volley’s AI integration on Roku devices.

Voice AI game creator Volley has released its Volley app on streaming video player Roku. As part of this launch, Volley introduces Jeopardy!, the beloved game show from Sony Pictures Television, as the inaugural voice-enabled game on the Roku platform.

To participate in the Jeopardy! game, users can initiate a game round by searching for “Volley” and responding to clues using their voice, simulating the experience of the actual game show. The Roku version of Jeopardy! is touted as Volley’s most immersive game thus far.

Max Child, the co-Founder and CEO of Volley, reported that over 20 million people have played Volley’s games via smart devices such as Amazon Alexa and Google Home. The expansion to the Roku platform allows a wider audience to access voice-activated games that may be enjoyed individually or in a group setting. Child further stated that this initial game launch is just the starting point, with several more games planned for introduction on this platform in the coming months.

Suzanne Prete, External Vice President, Game Shows at Sony Pictures Television, recognized Jeopardy!’s enduring appeal as an iconic quiz show for nearly six decades. She noted that viewers have long been accustomed to vocally participating with the TV screen during the show. Volley’s introduction of voice AI technology on Roku provides an enhanced gaming experience for Jeopardy! fans. 

Volley’s portfolio encompasses various voice controlled games, like Song Quiz, Wheel of Fortune and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, with the latter two being based on well-known shows from Sony Pictures Television. Annually, over 100 million game sessions are played, demonstrating Volley’s innovative contributions to the field of AI-powered voice gaming.

Roku, ‌the largest connected TV provider in the U.S., recently incorporated voice control features into their devices. This integration makes Roku a logical partner for Volley’s expansion. Jeopardy! is now accessible on all Roku devices. The first week of gameplay is complimentary, followed by a US$9.99 monthly subscription fee for the Volley app.
