Generation Voice - Digi-Parenting

The emergence of generation voice

You might ask "What is Generation Voice?", but a better question to ask is "Who is Generation Voice?".

If you were born after 1998, you won't know a world without Google. If you were born this year, you won't know a world without Voice Assistants. And you are Generation Voice.

Voice Assistants or virtual assistants aren't brand new, but they are now coming in to popular use. So much so, that you've probably done a Voice Search yourself, or have seen someone else ask their phone to do something.

There are a handful of companies that have established Voice Assistants: Apple with Siri and HomePod, Google with Google Assistant and Google Home, Microsoft with Cortana and Amazon with Alexa and Echo.

Each Assistant has it's own characteristics and they work well within their own eco-systems. Assistants can go even further, letting you interact with Home Automation, even if it's just the lights.

Siri works well with other iOS Apps like Calendar and Reminders. (Try asking Siri to "set a reminder").

Google works well with Search, facts, conversons and can even play games with you.

Whether you decide to use a smart speaker or your phone, a Voice Assistant can be a great tool to organise your home. Set calendar events, convert measurements for cooking, even set an egg timer.

They can also be a lot of fun. Try asking Siri to rap for you. Or ask Google Home to beatbox foryou. Take a look at some Family fun with Google Home.
