What are Voice Assistants?
A voice assistant is a personal helper that lives in your phone, tablet, speaker, streaming box or another internet-connected device. These have exploded in popularity in recent years and now come pre-installed on most smart devices. The most common are Amazon’s Alexa, Microsoft’s Cortana and of course, Android's own Google Assistant. In general voice, assistants react to voice commands and give the user relevant information about his inquiry. Presently voice assistants are already able to process orders of products, answer questions, perform actions like playing music or start a simple phone call with a friend.
Voice assistants are so easy to use that many people forget to stop and WONDER how they work. How do voice assistants understand us? Is it magic? A complex system of codes? An actual person listening on the other end? The answer is less complicated than you might think. It all starts with a signal word. Have you ever called a friend’s name to get their attention? Users say the names of their voice assistants for the same reason. They might say, “Hey Siri!” or simply, “Alexa!” Whatever the signal word is, it wakes up the device.
