Our future will be driven by ‘voice searches’ as we gradually start accepting more and more devices powered by voice AI. Currently, smart speakers have only invaded the living rooms that enable us to listen to music, order things online, call someone, and some other basic things. Besides, voice search functionality allows users to search for things online using the internet connection to access a search engine through their spoken voice.
Users have to say a certain ‘wake phrase’ followed by the ‘voice command’ that specifies what users are looking for online.
The gradual rise of voice search
The immense development and improvement in voice searches in the last decade resulted from AI’s development. The very first voice search came with a bundle of less than a hundred voice commands. The voice search here showed people a search engine results page in response to their query. It was a simple approach where searching by voice helped develop a relevant search result page instantly.
The primary issue here was the lack of speech recognition, which meant that this voice search wasn’t working fairly. However, this feature did give millions a taste of what voice search can do in the future. With more advancement in the technology and subsequent rise of AI-enabled firms, they can train their search engines and digital assistants to recognize a wider vocal range.
