How Voice Search Is Changing Our World
Siri was first released back in 2011 and has truly revolutionized the way people interact with content on the web. This smart voice assistant uses a combination of speech recognition technology and natural language processing to understand the voice queries and come up with the best answer possible. Millions of people use these devices nowadays, and they have a lot of options to choose from. Besides Siri, there is also Alexa, Google Now, Cortana, Bixby, and numerous others. However, Siri statistics show that it is still the most popular smart assistant out there.
What are voice assistants used for?
Voice assistants are incredibly versatile so their actual usefulness depends on the user’s needs. In addition to providing answers to a range of questions, these assistants can make appointments, control home devices, play media files, and perform dozens of other tasks. Voice-controlled AI can be integrated into mobile apps (as it is the case with the iPhone Siri feature) or specially designed smart speakers.
