Ever since the Internet has become ubiquitous, the ways we conduct online searching have also expanded. Voice searching is just one of the many advanced technological features that weren't available to us back in the early days of technology and the Internet. Today, almost every search engine has the option for voice search. And this feature doesn't end at only search engines.
Voice searching has also become a part of many of our devices. The most common examples are our cellphones and our laptops or PCs. From Siri in Mac OS to Amazon's Alexa or Cortana in Microsoft, each operating system has its own artificially intelligent voice bot embedded into their systems. We use these voice search facilities to look up a number of things or to get tasks done. We can make voice search queries related to something that we did the day before, to find something on the Internet, or even for system commands.
Other than cellphones or PCs, there are other devices in the tech market that too, come with voice search options. One such example is smart speakers, which have expanded to three-quarters of households in the United States, in 2020. And other examples include everything we can term smart. Smart TVs and watches and other gadgets with voice search options that are becoming readily available. It can even be found in many hi-fi cars!
