This Weather App Uses Your Voice To Turn You Into Your Own Reporter
By Nicole Rodrigues, 20 Sep 2023
The arrival of Apple’s much-anticipated iOS 17 has ushered in various possibilities and improvements across multiple applications. One such app that’s swiftly adapting to these new horizons is Carrot Weather, a weather app with a unique blend of humor and meteorological insights.
Among the standout features in Carrot Weather’s latest update is the introduction of a voice impersonation feature. This addition utilizes Apple’s Personal Voice accessibility feature, allowing the app to mimic a user’s voice while delivering weather updates, turning you into your very own weather reporter. Beyond its playful side, this feature holds particular significance for individuals facing the risk of speech impairment.
Carrot Weather’s update doesn’t stop at voice impersonation. It introduces weather widgets that integrate into the iPhone StandBy mode, iPad Lock Screen, and Apple Watch Smart Stack. These widgets make it effortless for users to stay informed about weather conditions.
Watch wearers will also appreciate the app’s redesigned interface for watchOS 10, which incorporates a vertical tab view for easy navigation between forecasts and detailed information.
Carrot Weather now speaks in 14 additional languages in a move toward global inclusivity, yet retains its signature snarky comments, which have garnered a dedicated following.
Tracking impending storms is now more intuitive, thanks to the next-hour radar feature that forecasts storm movement up to 60 minutes into the future, enhancing the app’s practical utility.
Users can access these enhancements in Carrot Weather’s version 5.12, available for download on the App Store.
