‘Voice first world’ nears: Smart devices + artificial intelligence = end of touch

And 55 percent of families with broadband say voice control is “appealing,” thus “driving adoption and usage of voice control devices and apps.” In fact as we head into the 2018 holiday season, 43 percent of households with broadband say voice control is an “important feature” when these families decide what smart TV or streaming media player device to buy.

Craig Leslie, Senior Research Analyst, Parks Associates, points out: “Voice is becoming a common feature in connected entertainment devices. Best Buy is planning multiple new Insignia Fire TV Editions with a voice remote, and Roku is integrating Google Assistant voice commands in its streaming boxes, sticks, and Roku TVs. Even set-top box makers are ramping up their voice control offerings in response to pay-TV provider demand.”
