Due to the combination of their voice and natural language recognition capabilities, smartphone and tablet intelligent assistants have become essential. Simple questions are processed in the device, but more complicated ones are uploaded to servers in a datacenter, and the results are sent back to the mobile device.

See virtual assistant and voice recognition.
