Voice search is not a fad. It has comfortably crossed the threshold of early adopters.
It has gained mileage because it is more convenient for a user to speak with an assistant than to type. The results of voice queries are also faster.
Here are a few statistics to prove that voice search is here to stay:
- Voice labs found that there were a total of 33 million voice-first devices in circulation.
- In a survey of SEO trends for 2017 and beyond, voice search stood at the third spot.
- In his keynote, Google CEO Sundar Pichai announced that one-fifth of the queries on Google are voice searches.
Teenagers are savvy users of voice search, but Thrive Analytics found that people in all age groups use mobile personal assistants.
