YallaHub, a leading “quick-commerce as a service” (QAAS) platform, has partnered with drinks producer Lapochka to add artificial intelligence to its product development and aid plans for UAE expansion. The partnership will utilize YallaHub’s full suite of services, including fulfillment, logistics, payment gateway integration, customer support, and last-mile delivery.

Lapochka recently hit the headlines after launching a groundbreaking AI-generated lemonade. The company’s beverage makers used a neural network to analyze consumer preferences, sales data, and reviews to craft the perfect soft drink recipe. The resulting concoction sticks to the brand’s commitment to natural ingredients and features an eye-catching “robot apple” design concept.

“We are constantly seeking methods to surprise and delight our customers with unique and innovative products,” explained Lapochka CEO Anton Balyklov. “This AI-created beverage allows us to introduce consumers of all ages to the latest technologies in a fun and delicious way. Partnering with YallaHub empowers us to potentially expand our reach and share this exciting innovation with a wider audience in the MENA region”.

The partnership between YallaHub and Lapochka aims to push the boundaries of the beverage industry. With a strong focus on natural ingredients and refreshing taste, the new AI-designed beverage should also be a perfect fit for the booming UAE drinks market — projected to hit $23.2 billion in value by 2025.

By combining Lapochka’s new-found expertise in AI-driven product development with YallaHub’s established MENA presence, the collaboration could potentially revolutionize consumer experience across the region. By the end of 2024, Lapochka plans to establish itself in several major UAE marketplaces, hoping to achieve sales of over 100,000 cans per year.

Truecaller, a well-known app for identifying and blocking spam calls, is enhancing its services by allowing users to create AI versions of their voices. The new feature, available to those with access to Truecaller’s AI Assistant, stems from a partnership with Microsoft and its Azure AI Speech tool, allowing the generation of realistic AI voices that accurately mimic users’ speech patterns and tone.

“This groundbreaking capability not only adds a touch of familiarity and comfort for the users but also showcases the power of AI in transforming the way we interact with our digital assistants,” explained Truecaller product director and general manager Raphael Mimoun in a recent blog post.

The AI Assistant in Truecaller screens incoming calls, informing recipients of a caller’s purpose. Based on this information, users can decide whether to answer the call themselves or let the AI Assistant handle it.

When the feature was introduced in 2022, users could only choose from a collection of preset voices. The ability to record one’s own voice represents a significant step towards the complete personalization of the service.
