When we talk about the voice enables technology, you will almost find it everywhere now. Starting from the gadgets for home to high-end technologies for mobile phones, every tech firm is trying to spur innovation in the voice enabled technological offerings market. The only difference is that some have figured out the importance of it, and how to make the most of it, while some firms are still trying to break the rut.

Are you geared up for a voice enabled future? 

Human voice is indeed the most natural and engaging element that helps to connect us to the world. However, what about the imitation of such voice? How about a smarter AI based tool, who is a master of not only listening, but following the commands and replaying like a human would do? Isn’t it going to interesting and engaging? For example, you are sitting in your office and you just ask the machine to tell you about tasks lined up for the day or the meeting. And, you instantaneously get an answer without even typing a word!

Though, we have already seen a bit of it in the movie ‘Her’, which clearly showed us the future. A future where it would be so easy to engage with the machine, who will not only understand our language, but will also act just like a colleague. However, if we talk about the present time, the voice enabled technologies are surely being explored and evolved. We still have to go a long way to make it accessible and useful for everyone. 

Why voice is turning out to be a must-have feature?

  • More engagement 

One of the key reasons why voice is turning out to be a must have is because of its engagement qualities. Voice indeed adds more value to any app, and it lures the customers to interact more with the tools. Let’s take the example of the voice based instructions of the car dashboards. Don’t you think it has made it more feasible for the people to use their mobile phones more easily, without even having to touch the screen? It phone applications into the car as well. That’s done with the help of the voice recognition feature. And, it enables the people to text, speak, use voice commands etc., with ease. Users can also see the notification through voice commands.

  • Boosts the volume of users 

Voice enablement makes the applications more useful. This wonderful feature makes the application a lot more feasible and preferred by a large set if users. It won’t be wrong if we say that due to voice enablement, any tool becomes more preferred. Also, the number of users increase because of the add-on simplicity factor. 
Things to keep in kind while including voice features:

  • Keep in mind the simplicity factor 

The whole purpose of adding the voice features to the software is making it more convenient and easy to operate. Therefore, do make sure that you never neglect the simplicity factor. The voice enabled gadgets have to be super simple. While devising them, you have to stay away from any kind of intricacy as otherwise it will spoil the whole purpose of a voice enabled tool.

  • Know your motive 

All voice enabled devices are not the same. Therefore, while devising your voice enabled tool or program you have to know the motive. Also, knowing the aim of the product is always going to help you give it a perfect shape. At the same time, the voice enabled app has to be prepared specifically for a target audience. Therefore, the language, the way of speaking etc. have to be all as per the expectations of the target audience you are dealing with. 

  • Make it flexible 

There’s nothing better than making a voice based tool or program more flexible. If it can be integrated in different set of hardware, then nothing like it. Therefore, while developing a voice enabled tool, program etc. make sure you turn it into a highly elastic tech offering. It should be able to integrate with different type of machines to offer the same value. 

Overall, the market of the voice enabled software is blooming. It is the future. Therefore, the developers have to be abreast with the latest software development technologies. They need to come up with new ways to create mind-blowing voice enabled products which are loved by the market. Also, integration of voice features to the generic machines or tools could also be considered.
