Apple Siri

iOS 14 comes with support for Sound Recognition in Accessibility. Your phone can now listen for specific sounds – a baby crying, smoke alarm, water running, etc. – and notify you.

Amazing feature for all kinds of users – inclusivity at its best. #WWDC2020 https://t.co/3hIL8JuTyB

Already back in 2015, Siri was getting 4 bln requests/month. Yesterday, Apple announced Siri is getting 25 bln requests per month.

In 5 years the requests per month went up more than 6x. Hello conversational, hello Voice!
