Your VOICE is the next hottest thing in world of Technology
Yes! Your voice is the next hottest thing in the world of technology now. Some of the most popular gadgets over the holiday season were smart speakers with digital assistants form Amazon and Google. Apple is coming out with its own speaker this year; Microsoft and Samsung have partnered on another.
As the annual CES gadget show kicks off in the US this week, manufacturers are expected to unveil even more voice controlled devices as Amazon and Google make their digital assistants available on a wider array of products.
If these prove popular, you'll soon be able to order around much more of your house, including kitchen appliances, washing machines and other devices. While major tech companies typically don't make big announcements at CES, their technologies will be powering products and services from startups and other small companies.
Cars, lights, washing machines and other everyday items are getting internet connections. That could mean checking what's left in your fridge from the grocery store, for instance. Among the gadgets to be displayed this year, expect more appliances and tasks for them to do online.
