Getting Our Bearings After A Flurry of Announcements

The last fews weeks have brought an incredible range of devices, capabilities and geographies and languages to the voice-first platforms. This week is a good one to catch our breath, with a combination of forward-and backward-looking analyses, to help make sense of the voice landscape today.

Though the week is not without any news – Alexa now supports voice recognition, allowing it to detect and personalize the user's experience based on who is speaking. Neat feature, and brings parity with one of Google's capabilities.
