The best cure for one's bad tendencies is to see them in action in another person. Voodoo is a family-friendly solution for a social problem: Cursing applicable on google home. you don’t need to buy any hardware!
Americans used to have this way of raising their kids, whenever one of them curse, they take away one dollar from them, put it in a jar. So basically Voodoo is the modern way to that!
What it does?
Voodoo is a google home app that detects voice, whenever someone curse Voodoo hears it, and reply a notification: One dollar deducted, Voodoo is connected to the user's e-wallet and the Saudi social charity fund bank account, so it deducts the money from the person's account, and donate it to a charity.
