“The entertainment ecosystem is lagging a bit in the voice control area, even though 45% of U.S. broadband households see voice control of the TV as appealing,” said Jennifer Kent, Director, Research Quality & Product Development, Parks Associates. “Voice-based technologies experienced massive growth in the past five years, by alleviating complexity in the user experience and delivering key use cases in control of smart home devices. As consumers see these voice solutions operate their smart lights and thermostats, their interests extend to their entertainment services, creating opportunities for players that can bring a quality voice-based solution to this ecosystem.”
