“Hey Google, what is the temperature today?”
If you’ve ever asked your smartphone a question that required an internet search, you’ve done a voice search. Digital Assistants like Siri, Alexa, Cortana or Google Assistant all rely on a user’s voice to perform a task instead of typing directly into Google. With the emergence of smartphones, smart speakers and even smart houses, voice search is a huge trend that is here to stay. By the year 2020, it is estimated that 50% of all searches will be voice searches. It is also predicted that 30% of all searches will be done without a screen, and 55% of households in the United States will own a smart speaker or digital assistant.
