Smart speakers and virtual assistant devices are hot consumer products. Whether it's the Google Home or Amazon Echo, they allow users to perform commands using voice controls. The following two reports take a closer look at the global smart speaker and automotive virtual assistant device market.
Smart speakers continue to rank as one of the top-selling consumer electronic devices. Just last year, Amazon announced its' top-selling item for the holidays was the Echo Dot, a smaller version of its flagship smart speaker, the Echo.
But Amazon isn't the only player in the smart speaker market. Several other major companies either sell or are looking to sell their own smart speakers.
This includes Google, Altec Lansing, Anker Innovations and many others.
So, what's driving the strong demand for smart speakers? Well, one reason for their newfound popularity is the simple fact that smart speakers have become more advanced. With the introduction of the Echo, for instance, consumers can perform a variety of tasks using voice controls.
This makes smart speakers particularly useful in applications where traditional touch commands aren't an option, such as cooking food in the kitchen or driving a vehicle. Rather than touching the device to control it, users can simply speak commands, to which the device responds.
