Voice altering consumer interaction with technology

by Dina Abdelrazik | Oct. 17, 2017

The new age in conversational interfaces is shifting the interaction model away from touch, type, and swipe to voice and this is changing the way consumers can interact with technology in various market segments.

From the smart home to the connected car, voice-based technologies are bringing about the emergence of new use cases. While voice-based assistants are key features of smartphones, the smart home and connected entertainment are two key areas for the consumer where voice interfaces will be able to demonstrate their full potential.

Smart home adoption continues to be stymied by competing protocols and fragmentation, creating complexity for the end user. This is further intensified by the growing number of connected devices in consumers’ lives. Parks Associates research shows the average U.S. broadband household has 8.1 connected computing, entertainment, or mobile devices, plus another 2.1 smart home devices.
