Alexa, can you pay my water bill? Dallas company adds city info to Amazon's virtual assistant

Voice-activated personal assistants have gained popularity across the U.S. About 12 percent of U.S. households with broadband had a voice assistant by late 2016, according to market research firm Parks Associates. That was up from 5 percent a year earlier.


By 2018, about 30 percent of interactions with technology will be through conversations with smart machines, according to a report by consulting firm Gartner.
