Voice-first application design and engineering: The voice-first landscape

User interfaces are constantly evolving. From the green screens of early mainframe computers to the touch screens of today’s mobile devices, people are always looking for easier ways to interact with and retrieve information.

In our latest white paper, “Voice-first application design and engineering: How organizations can design for the voice-first era using a practical engineering approach,” we look at how voice is rapidly becoming the preferred interface for a variety of devices and applications.

The early success of Apple's Siri played a large part in making the voice user interface (VUI) mainstream. Today, all the major technology vendors have “smart speakers” with cloud-driven digital assistants that can answer just about any question you might have. This has led experts to predict that 50 percent of web-search queries in the U.S. will be voice generated by the year 2020.

Voice search adoption over time

This shift isn’t limited to information technologies either. Voice assistants are now popular features in a wide range of consumer products, including cars, kitchen appliances, and TVs. As the white paper explains, businesses that ignore this trend run the same risks as those who ignored the mobile-first revolution of the last decade.
