Microsoft-owned GitHub is experimenting with integrating voice control capabilities for the Copilot tool, which is used to auto-complete code searched by a neural network in open databases. The “Hey, GitHub!” command You can enable Copilot to enter a code by voice without using the keyboard, similar to how you interact with Apple Siri or Google Assistant.
Voice control capabilities will be available to GitHub users interacting with Copilot, an AI tool that costs $10 a month. GitHub introduced it earlier this year to help programmers write code. Copilot provides options to extend existing code in an integrated development environment (IDE) such as Visual Studio Code, Neovim, and JetBrains. Copilot can also provide complex algorithms along with boilerplate code and unit testing support.
“We’re excited to bring the benefits of GitHub Copilot to more developers, including those who struggle with hand typing, with the power of your voice.”, says the GitHub statement. Currently, the Copilot voice control is available in test mode in Visual Studio Code, but in the future the developers plan to systematically expand the scope of its presence and capabilities. The development of voice control features is carried out by the GitHub Next team, whose activities relate to the creation of experimental features within the project.
