‘Alexa, multiply’: Voice assistants show huge growth

Usage of voice-activated assistants such as Amazon’s Alexa and Google Assistant remains relatively low. But it is growing at an impressive rate.

In fourth quarter of last year, 12 percent of U.S. broadband households had smart speakers with voice assistant technology, according to a new report from Parks Associates.

That was more than double fourth quarter 2015, when adoption was at just 5 percent.

According to the study, more than half of broadband households find the devices’ ability to control smart home equipment appealing. This includes things such as voice-activated lighting or thermostats.

More than half also like their ability to control home entertainment devices.
