🔥 Retell AI – API for building human-like conversational voice AI

We help developers implement human-like voice agents in a day instead of months. Plug in your LLM, a voice agent in born!

Tl;dr: You can now use our API to build human-like voice AI agents with your LLM. We've achieved response times averaging 800ms, reaching the level of human interactions. (see our demo or call +1 (415) 831-7577 to try it out).

Problem — Building human-like voice AI agents is hard

  • Human-like interaction is hard: Building a voice AI agent that can talk seems easy (stitching together speech-to-text, LLM, and text-to-speech), but making it interact like humans is hard. In human conversation, one has to respond fast and handle all kinds of situations (handling interruptions, knowing when it's your turn to speak, etc).

  • Long development time: Developers building voice products spend hundreds of hours focusing on the voice conversation experience alone.

  • Quality often falls short: Current voice AI products often have long response latency (>3s), do not know when to appropriately speak (might interrupt you too much, or respond not quickly enough), and do not handle user interruptions well (AI and human talking over each other), and the list goes on.
