It’s a New Year so that only means one thing… our Voice Predictions for 2022!

2022 is a year where we are expecting big things and are looking forward to seeing what industry and tech updates are brought our way. So what does our Rabbit & Pork MD, John Campbell think will happen for Voice Marketing over the next 12 months?

As per last year, we’ll be using a points system which we’ve borrowed from Moz.

Nailed It (+2) – When a prediction is right on the money and the primary criteria are fulfilled
Partially Accurate (+1) – Predictions that are in the ballpark, but are somewhat different than reality
Not Completely Wrong (-1) – Those that got near the truth, but are more “incorrect” than “correct”
Way Off (-2) – Guesses which didn’t come close

Google

3. Using Google Assitant to Create Audio or Video Content – This would include aspects such as your Google Assistant to listen to you and create a Podcast or Youtube Video. Or use your camera and using Google Assistant as a Production Assitant.

 

Apple

General Industry Predictions

1. Merge of NFT + Voice – Through monetization or gamification or the ability to win content via an Alexa skill action.

2. Interoperability (in a commercial device) – One device is able to run multiple assistants. It may be a device that can run Alexa but also its own skills. (Open Voice Network)

3. Voice Cloning Problems/Security / Fake news – A big news story regarding hackers using voice technology. Brands also creating their own persona and adopting this Voice Search technology.
