Hi {{first_name}},
Every week we collect the developments in the Voice domain into a single list of things you shouldn’t have missed.
10 years ago none of us worked in Voice unless you were at Nuance or SRI. Or where about to be bought by Nuance (when you were part of the Belgian Voice Valley) or called Arjan.
Now try and imagine what will happen in the coming 10 years?
  • Will Amazon and Google still lead?
  • What will have happend with Apple and Samsung in the Voice world?
  • Will the now logical mobile-app-like approach with skills and actions still be around?
  • Or will the computer understand our intent and domain without any invocation (triple word score here for Voice scrabble 8-).
  • Will Voice become a medium.. maybe even with network effects like social.. and wil advertising be part of it?
Exciting!
We can’t wait!
Now on with the news.

It’s absolutely astonishing that a utility app for Echo devices is sustaining a top 10 Apple App Store position days after Christmas.

My research shows that Amazon Alexa app downloads surpassed 500000 units on Christmas Day breaking all records for this type of app.

That’s it for this week. Another period of slow-news is also to be expected for next week. Maybe we’ll see some Voice related announcements ahead of CES.
Enjoy the closing of the decennium 🍾
Cheers! 🥂
