The Amazon Alexa smart speaker was released in 2014. Many of us have wondered, how will it change society? We can’t deny that we need this device, but how will it benefit us? Here are a few ideas. Consider these: It can be an accessible hub for your smart home. Alexa can also help those with disabilities use voice activation to control their home systems or answer the door. An early study published in Psychology & Marketing investigated how users bond emotionally with Alexa.
The first Amazon Alexa features are aimed at improving the user experience, making it more personalized and interactive. The device can also infer your mood based on the words you speak. The Amazon Ring is one example of an Alexa-compatible doorbell. When a visitor rings your doorbell, Alexa should be able to identify that person, ask them their name, and how many cookies they want. In the future, there may be minuscule microphones installed throughout the home.
Other advantages of Alexa are that it can be used on devices with low-end specs. Despite its limitations, Alexa is a universal assistant, meaning you can use it on any screen or device. It has also been said that omnipresence is an advantage. It is also convenient to use, especially when traveling, because you can ask Alexa questions anytime. If you’re concerned about privacy, you can delete all your previous voice recordings from your device’s memory.
