Tech companies are rapidly adopting voice command tech, and Amazon’s Alexa seems to be winning the race.
A news article on Investor titled Amazon Alexa Dominates Voice-Command Tech at CES 2017 reveals:
At CES 2017, numerous companies announced that they are using Amazon’s Alexa voice-response technology to control their devices with spoken commands.
Though Apple with Siri and Google with Google Voice were one of the early adopters of voice-based tech assistants, Amazon with Alexa has taken a substantial lead.
One of the reasons for Alexa’s large scale adoption can be attributed to the fact that it has been released to third-party developers so that they can integrate Alexa into their smart devices. Interestingly, Google used a similar strategy to gain a stronghold on the mobile OS market.
Amazon no more is just an online retailer. Matter of fact, with Alexa, Amazon will be able to create an army of loyal customers that will be hard to match.
