Let’s face it, we are getting busier by the minute, more multitasking than ever and that’s where voice assistants can be extremely helpful for a busy family – from searching for a local family-friendly restaurant, calling a babysitter, creating a to do list, checking sports scores, all without lifting a finger! You tend to speak faster than you type, so why not use a voice assistant!
So what voice assistants currently exist in the market? Cortana, Alexa, Siri and Google Assistant which you may have to download or already find on your desktop, laptop and/or mobile device ready to use.
You will need at-home, voice-activated speakers – portable are best and check for compatibility with your voice assistant. Sound quality is important as well if you want to stream music or listen to podcasts.
Which voice assistant wins us over right now? Google Assistant – simply because of it’s own ‘bilingualism’ – ask in English/Spanish and get an answer in either one!
