The 21st century has been defined by technology that is constantly revolutionising the way we live our daily lives, including how we run our businesses.
From mobile technology to artificial intelligence and more, it seems there’s always some new type of B&B technology for you to consider.
Lately, the buzz has been about voice recognition and how it’s impacting travel trends around the globe. So, is this the next type of technology that you need to invest in?
If you’ve ever asked Siri a question or placed an Amazon Prime order via Alexa, then you know just how great voice recognition technology can be.
Voice recognition is the up-and-coming way many people are getting the information they need. In fact, voice searches have increased by more than 40%, and people love that they get direct, personal results for their specific requests.
Voice recognition allows people to search on-the-go, including when they are driving or taking care of another task. While home devices like the Amazon Echo and Google Home are becoming increasingly popular, most people have access to voice recognition technology in the palm of their hands. The vast majority of smartphones are already capable of voice searches.
So, how is voice recognition impacting the travel industry? Here are a few notable trends to consider:
