Voice-enabled devices like Alexa and Google Home are fundamentally transforming the way we interact with products and have become a household staple. While 75% of households in the U.S. are predicted to own an in-home voice technology device by 2025, the current challenge with these different conversational UIs is that they don’t play nice together. How can UX and product teams design products to account for this challenge and the massive shift towards voice-activated technology? Having designed one of the first audio technologies to bridge multiple voice-activated devices together seamlessly, Brendon will share his expertise in how to design products for a voice-activated future.
