The Sims is one of the most popular games ever made, giving players a chance to forget about their everyday lives and lead alternative lives in the virtual world. One thing, however, cannot be left behind, as it is almost impossible to imagine any modern computer or mobile device without a smart assistant. EA has recently announced that its very successful series will be still provided with its own version of the Alexa smart assistant, which will be called Lin-Z.
Lin-Z makes players’ lives much easier
In many ways, Lin-Z is very similar to Alexa and other smart assistants, amongst which Cortana, Siri, Google Assistant and Bixby are definitely the most popular. This extremely useful feature can be accessed through a smart speaker with a characteristic diamond that glows green. There are many ways in which Lin-Z can help us while we play the Sims. For example, it is responsible for playing music, switching lights on and off and doing trivia, as well as ordering various services, such as repair, gardening and food.
The availability of the Lin-Z smart assistant
This revolutionary feature has been introduced this week in the latest Sims 4, and is now available for both PC and Mac. In addition to Lin-Z, Alexa is also gaining some useful skills for the players. The updated version of this feature allows users to play tracks from the game’s official soundtrack and to do trivia. This latest version of Alexa has become available for users in many countries, including places such as the U.S., the UK, Canada, Australia and Japan, allowing its users to take advantage of the most recent discoveries in the field of artificial intelligence.
