Results: are smart speakers a thing? Jury still out...
What do those products give us? Easy queries, web-searches, note- and reminder-making, texting, calls, and music playback through a simple voice request. And addressing your smart assistant by voice is definitely much less awkward when you do it in the comfort of your own home.
So, it's not a "must-have" product, OK. But it's definitely a "nice to have one", especially if you are transitioning into the whole Internet of Things and smarthome appliances and accessories. We thought we'd ask — how many of you are getting / have a smart speaker? Well... almost half of the ones that voted do! But then again, the other half are either entirely not interested. So, smart speakers are not really a smash hit, or at least not yet.
Would you buy / do you have a smart home speaker?
