tl;dr Voice is an amazing new form of interaction! Learn as much as you can and build thing!!!
Quite some time ago I got myself a cute little Amazon Echo device 🗣. You know? The weird black, bottle formed thing that many people find creepy because it listens to you all the time?🔍 The very polite lady inside is quite handy when it comes to little tasks and information you want to consume👍 Today I’m using it mainly for smart home controls, news, little information, music and handy tools like timers and stuff. And you know what? I fucking love this thing! 😍 Of course, I’m a bit nerdy here and checked out the developer documentation from top to bottom. Already developed some nice skills, 🤓 for private use and at work (also one at the INNOHACKS hackathon). Additionally, to my Amazon Echo, I got myself a Google Home mini and I’m comparing the two assistants now side by side which is quite interesting.
BUT, what I wanted to say actually is: VOICE IS A BIG THING! And it sells you one main asset: TIME ⏰ I think this form of interaction will definitely develop and grow in the future. It just feels so natural and effortless. And just think about how young the ecosystem is. I know, the killer app like maybe an Instagram for the phone wasn’t published yet. But hey, the ecosystem is fucking YOUNG! What now? Grab your favorite coder buddy, dive into the world of voice interaction and start to create THAT KILLER APP! I love to observe those amazing trends and I want to try out as much as possible! Learning as much as possible 🚀
Keep creating. Peace ✌️
