Few years ago we were typing everything, not even thinking about voice technologies. Early technology adopters were considered as rather experimenting than doing a real thing. 

Now we use voice assistants in our devices the way we use keyboards. We ask Siri to dial in while we drive. We tell Google Home to start a timer while we cook. When we want to relax or are bored, we ask Amazon’s Alexa to play music or tell a joke. 

By 2021, Gartner reports, early adopter brands that redesign their websites to support visual and voice search will increase digital commerce revenue by 30%.

Voice is everywhere in our daily life, from everyday routine to very narrowed and sometimes life-saving situations. Imagine if you are visually impaired person, and you need to take a bus where stations are not voiced-over, or you don’t understand the language. Simple ride becomes a challenging one. What would you do? Well, many people turn voice over in their mobile maps apps, and listen to bus stops this way. 

Today voice-enabled devices shift our behaviors same way touch screens have influenced our kids, — and the new opportunities arise for creative entrepreneurs and developers who is open to join us for this journey.
