According to Tractica, unique consumer users for virtual digital assistants will grow from more than 390 million worldwide users in 2015 to 1.8 billion users by 2021.

For the vast majority of us, an ultimate luxury would be an associate/assistant who consistently foresees our every need, and makes a move when essential. That extravagance is currently accessible, gratitude to artificial assistants, otherwise known as voice assistants.

To call any technology that makes our lives easier by one name is almost impossible though. There are a variety of terms that refer to the assistant that can perform tasks or services for an individual, and they are almost interchangeable — but not quite. They differ mainly based on how we interact with the technology, the app, or a combination of both.


  • According to Voicebot.ai, Amazon Echo maintains a 61% market share among smart speaker owners while Google Home closed the gap by rising 5.5% to a 24% share.
  • At the close of 2018, U.S. smart speaker adoption rose to 26.2% of 66.4 million users according to a Voicebot.ai and Voicify survey of 1,038 adults conducted in the first week in January 2019.
  • By 2020, the Research Firm Canalys expects the smart speaker installed base to more than double again to 225 million and continue rising to more than 300 million by 2022.

The Journey

Looking into the journey of voice assistant, it started way back in 1961 when IBM introduced the IBM Shoebox, the first digital speech recognition tool, that recognized 16 words and digits. With its evolution since then, it was 2011 when IBM’s Watson won Jeopardy. And that’s when the voice assistant started growing exponentially, with Amazon Alexa launching in 2014, followed by Google Home in 2016.

Voice Assistant, with its various versions like-Echo, Echo Plus, Echo Dot, Tap, Echo Show, Echo Spot, Echo Look, Home, Mini and more, is running the market and evolving more and more to adapt to what’s all new to the world.

Proven Expertise to ensure effective execution

Voice assistants have the ability to act as additional, augmentative resources for organizations by leveraging conversational technology and AI-enabled, cloud-based processing power to perform tasks that would otherwise be assigned to administrative assistants or more basic software.

Accessing reports, analyzing data and keeping crucial systems updated, voice assistant offers your business seamless day-to-day operations that are constantly being supervised. Voice assistants take on the responsibility for remembering important dates, deadlines, and scheduling, and therefore your professionals have more time and resources to help drive innovation and decrease costs.

Cost Benefits On Specialised Hiring

The rise of artificial intelligence has driven the technology as it surges from serving individual users through simple voice-based inputs to serving companies and businesses in a variety of use cases. With a growing business, the need for more resources also increases for the company, and so the companies are now implementing AI-powered virtual assistants to serve them in various.

There are a lot of cost benefits of developing/deploying a virtual assistant. The main reason, why people develop virtual assistant is to reduce the cost of business. It is estimated that developing a virtual assistant can save you as much as 40 percent in business expenses. A virtual workplace makes it easier to delegate work, track performance and collaborates frequently with your virtual team.

Cost benefits on Skill Development

Voice is one of the natural forms of communication out there-which is why users find Voice Assistants (VA) accessible, intuitive and easy to use. One of the key benefits a voice assistant offers is automating all of your low-value tasks.

It doesn’t make sense spending your time answering emails, scheduling social media posts, and performing other routine tasks. As highly specialized personnel, your time is worth much more. To better utilize your time and that of other employees, hiring a virtual assistant to do such routine work would be the best option.

It works the other way as well, like you may not have staff trained to perform some jobs. In that case, developing a virtual assistant can benefit your business to be completing repetitive work.

Feasibility and Technical Exploration at minimal R&D cost

If you’re wondering why basically every consumer device now comes with Alexa or Google Assistant, the simple reason is cost. The exact cost to develop a voice assistant depends on the functions you want to perform.

To build voice and natural language processing (NLP) capabilities into your own applications, you have several options. For Alexa, you can tap into an open API at no apparent cost beyond AWS charges; the same goes for Google, although Google Cloud site is as clear as mud on this point. Microsoft is also in the race, it lets you reuse your Alexa skills package with Cortana. For Apple, there’s an API for NLP, along with the $99 cost of becoming an Apple Developer and publishing an iOS app.
