Voice-controlled smart speakers
VIRTUAL ASSISTANTS THAT CAN LISTEN, SPEAK AND INTERACT
HOW IT WORKS
A smart speaker is a type of loudspeaker and voice command device with an integrated virtual assistant that offers interactive actions and hands-free activation with the help of one "hot word" (or several "hot words").
Place the speaker on a flat surface, and plug the charger into a powerpoint, and wait 1 minute.
Say the wake-up expression to activate the virtual assistant, such as Alexa, or OK Google.
You can start verbally to introduce questions, the voice recognition service deciphers the speech, and then sends a response back to the smart speaker
DON'T BE SHY, JUST ASK ALEXA...
A smart speaker is a device (with or without screen) that plays your favorite music, provides answers from verbally introduced questions, and controls parts of your home using a built-in virtual assistant feature.
