Do We Really Want Smart Voice Assistants In All Our Smart Home Devices?
Despite the fact that smart speakers come in a variety of shapes and configurations, most consumers choose to go with Amazon’s Dot or Google’s Home Mini. Voice is believed to be the coming generation’s primary interface for the consumers and thus, is incorporated into many gadgets and appliances.
CES saw a growing number of soundbars, smart TVs, media streamers, consoles and set-top boxes (STBs) incorporating far-field microphones to wake up Google Assistant and Alexa. Futuresource estimates that 53 million smart speakers sold worldwide in 2018, but a further 65 million TV-centric devices supporting Alexa, Google Assistant, Siri and Microsoft’s Cortana (Xbox) also shipped.
There are plenty of options for VA in the living room with Apple, Amazon, and Google among other popular manufacturers all working towards the same goal. These devices could even act as a hub for better smart home control. More and more devices like smart TVs, media streamers, soundbars, consoles and set-top boxes have VA’s incorporated in them.
Mobile handsets are also another major carrier of VAs. Wireless headphones and wearables are also becoming increasingly popular. AI’s growth with machine learning, facial recognition, language processing, and emotion engines also work to make VA more human in their communication.
