Friday 29 January 2021 | 18:37 CET | News
French owners of a Djingo smart speaker will receive a refund for its value, as Orange has moved to stop all services associated with the device from 31 March. The operator said that all personal data collected via the smart speaker will be deleted from this date. The news follows the decision by Orange to end all marketing of the product in October 2020, less than a year after commercial launch.
