There are an estimated 128 million Americans, or 38.5% of the population, that used a voice assistant in 2020, according to emarketer. With more time spent at your Memorial, TX, home in the last 12 months, that number rose significantly compared to 2019 because homeowners and their families spent more time together for the sake of social distancing and community health.
There are a few potential drawbacks to using the typical voice assistants like Apple’s Siri, Google, and Amazon’s Alexa, though. Data sharing for advertising purposes is the standard operating procedure, so your personal habits and preferences are shared with marketers regularly. In contrast, Josh.ai is a voice control platform that flips the norms of no privacy on its head.
