Top Voice News of First Half of 2019 with Ben Fox Rubin, Pete Erickson, and Eric Schwartz – Voicebot Podcast Ep 104

The first half of 2019 started with data around big growth numbers for smart speakers over the previous year, Amazon saying there were more than 100 million Alexa enabled devices, followed within a week by an announcement that there were over 1 billion devices with Google Assistant. That was followed by a lot of voice assistant news across multiple devices ranging from patio umbrellas to motorcycle helmets, cars, and robots from the U.S. and China at CES.

As the year progressed many more stories followed about on-device performance, new voice assistant features, new enterprise applications, and notably, issues and news items focused on privacy and security. Today’s guests include Pete Erickson of Modev, Ben Fox Rubin of CNET, and Eric Schwartz of Voicebot.ai. They share their thoughts on the news that was most noteworthy thus far in 2019.
