The smart speaker is based on an AI virtual assistant, Clova or CLOud Virtual Assistant, developed by Naver, a South Korean Internet portal operator.

Clova is similar to Amazon's Alexa and Apple's Siri. It combines speech recognition and natural language understanding to respond to users' questions and to call up information, such as the weather, traffic and news. Clova utilizes big data to provide various customized services depending on users' culture and geography.

For example, consumers can ask "Find a restaurant near me," and Naver will return a restaurant name and contact information, distance and route to the specific destination and the estimated time required to get there. Naver Music's streaming music service is also available.
