One week to go for the third Open Voice Meetup, generously made possible by Mirabeau and aFrogleap. The theme is #goingdutch and we will dive into the Dutch Google Assistant launch with Google’s product owner as well as key launch partners like Rabobank, KRO-NCRV, PostNL and others. Don’t miss out: www.openvoice.nl
Disappointed? - “…get used to it. HomePod has a lot of catching up to do. It launched 3.5 years after Amazon Echo and 1. 5 years after Google Home. It takes awhile to build out a big feature stack“ says Bret Kinsella from Voicebot. Good one, lets not get carried away and hope for movements that aren’t ready to be made.
Results - Five months after becoming the first travel company in the world to sell tickets on an Amazon Echo, Virgin Trains says sales are “exceeding expectations” and it’s now mulling its voice strategy moving forward, including the benefits of a dedicated in-house team.
