Apple May Be Prepping Siri for Smart Home Duty

Entry into the smart speaker market makes sense for a company with smart home aspirations.

"As the success of Echo and Google Home took off, everyone expected Apple to follow suit," said Brad Russell, a research analyst with Parks Associates.

Battle lines are being drawn over who will have the dominant voice technology in the home.

"Consumers have really responded to voice control, and the Echo has accelerated that," Russell told TechNewsWorld.

"It's pretty much accepted now that voice is the interface of the future," he said. "It makes adoption of devices much more frictionless, because you don't have to learn a different user interface for every product."
