Telefonica inks deals with Iberia, El Corte Ingles ahead of 'Movistar Home' launch

Thursday 18 October 2018 | 14:33 CET | News
Telefonica has announced strategic alliances with Iberia, Twitter and chain store El Corte Ingles ahead of the official launch of its voice-controlled "Movistar Home" physical hub. The consumer device unveiled at Mobile World Congress earlier this year has a large 8-inch screen that's designed to act as the hub for services integrated with the company's 'Aura' voice-activated assistant. The deals mean Movistar Home users will be able to browse products from the El Corte Ingles catalogue, consult Iberia flight information and interact with Twitter on the device.
