Man has always aimed to make life comfortable and easy. When he wanted to travel from place to place, he invented vehicles. When he wanted to talk to people who are at a distance, he invented the telephone. When he wanted to solve complex problems, he invented the computer. When he wanted to have more connectivity and task rendering in a small form factor, he invented the smartphone.
So the evolution of technology can be said to be the unstopping zeal of men to innovate something that makes life easier. Indeed all the devices and technology that we use today have affected our lives to a great extent.
Now we are slowly moving toward more advanced technology which is aimed to further make life easier and require less human intervention. Voice apps are one such technology that is going to impact the future life of humans in a great way. Smartphones run on an operating system and use apps to perform the tasks assigned to them.
These apps need manual inputs for them to perform a task. Sometimes manual inputs can become a hurdle, especially if one is busy with their hands. It won’t be easy to pick up that important work call if you are working in the kitchen. As a solution to that problem, companies have come up with voice apps.
Voice apps are such apps that aim to remove physical contact from the mobile devices as much as possible as they can perform tasks through voice control. Companies integrate their voice apps into their phones through their apps and voice assistants. A voice assistant is an artificial intelligence that is designed to answer the queries of the user through conversations. Apart from integrating them, companies also sell their voice assistants through various devices such as smart speakers.
Advantages of Voice Apps
Voice apps are the new generation of apps that receive input through the user’s voice. This has lots of benefits.
The biggest advantage of voice apps is that it is hands-free. It can remove the need to physically touch the device for performing tasks. It is convenient and fast. It can be used to write long emails or accept phone calls while driving, all with voice commands. It can also be immensely helpful to patients who are unable to use their hands.
Since voice apps are hands-free, they automatically become faster. They remove the need for a few clicks necessary to perform a task as simple as picking up a phone call or replying to a text in a busy schedule.
Voice apps are the simplest to use as they don’t need as much technical learning as manual apps do. They can simply be controlled via voices so old people and children don’t have any problem navigating through them.
Since the future is voice technology, the next generation of voice apps uses technology such as voice biometrics which makes our mobile devices even safer as they can only be accessed by the original user and Automated Speech Recognition which allows users to interact with the computer by converting their speech to text in real-time.
