Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Voice Recognition Market for Smartphones in the US 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Voice recognition Market for Smartphones in the US: Apple, Google, Microsoft and Nuance Communications

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The voice recognition market for smartphones in the US is dominated by a few players. This is because Nuance is the only prominent vendor developing products for mobile OEMs such as Samsung, Blackberry, and Acer. Second, major smartphone vendors in the US have their own voice recognition software; Apple has Siri, Microsoft has Speech and Cortana, Google has Google Now, and Samsung has S-voice.”

According to the report, voice recognition is gaining popularity among smartphone users because it makes it easy for users to search websites, take notes, send emails, or fix an appointment on their smartphones. It also eliminates the need for typing while the user is on the move as they can just give voice commands to their smartphones. The smartphones not only take commands, but also read out the message for the user.

Further, the report states that the development of voice recognition systems for different audiences speaking different languages with different accents is one of the major challenges facing the market.
