Incredible that now 1 in 6 Americans owns a smart speaker. The adoption curve for voice first technology has been amazing and it’s not really a surprise — voice, especially with music, makes things much easier.
There are two numbers that are going to grow quite a bit over the next year:
- We’ll see the number double to a 1 in 3 US households.
- The endpoints for AI assistants are going to spread even faster. Car, phone, household objects, are all going to be woken up with an AI assistant embedded inside.
We’ll reach ubiquity (80+%) in less than five years.
