“Hey Siri,” “Alexa!” and “Okay, Google” which were once some kind of amazement, have become a part of several people’s lives today.  The voice technology has changed the way we access information today.

A HubSpot report has analyzed the present use of voice search and has tried to put together some statistics to tell us what is going to happen with it in 2019.

On the State of Voice Shopping, Amanda Zantal-Wiener says, “Given that shopping was one of the highest-indicated use cases for voice assistants, we want to drill down into that behavior and find out just how prevalent it was among users.

We asked: “Have you ever used a voice assistant — like Alexa, Google Assistant, or Siri — to buy something online?”

While nearly half of respondents said that they don’t use a voice assistant at all, nearly a quarter of those who do said they have used the technology to make a purchase online.

When Amazon’s virtual assistant, Alexa, and the hardware it supports, Echo, first launched, that was one of the key selling points in the company’s narrative: Got your hands full? Now you can reorder dog food on Amazon, just by asking this speaker to do it for you”.
