Facebook and Spotify Join The Attack Of The Clones
The term clones is probably unfair, of course - we don't assume Facebook and Spotify will just copy existing products - they certainly have unique elements to bring to bear. But it is interesting to consider how voice is important to each of them, for very different reasons.
It's also interesting to consider how much these companies want to be in voice versus feel they NEED to be - Facebook to protect social media turf, Spotify to keep the HomePod, Google Home and Echo from stealing users for their own proprietary music services.
