Today we have part 1 of a two-part series on 2020 predictions
with guests from Australia, the UK, and Holland.
I want to give a shoutout to all of the Voice Insider
subscribers that offered their predictions for 2020. We had 46 of
them in all and you can read the full story at Voicebot.ai. Today,
I have 3 of them on the mic to elaborate on their predictions and
we will have three more in the next episode.
We start this week with the view from Asia and Australia from
Matt Ware of First, a leading digital and voice agency. He has
predictions about the rise of Asia in voice and what will happen
with discovery on the leading platforms this year.
Next we talk Apple and Siri with Katy Bass of Altavox in the
UK. Will there be a Siri OS? Will Apple do something meaningful
with Siri in 2020? Katy shares her perspective.
We wrap up Part 1 with Maarten Lens-FitzGerald who joins us
from Holland and discusses the single word that will describe the
sentiment around voice in 2020. We even score whether his 2019
prediction came to pass. Is there a voice winter? Maarten has some
thoughts on that too. Enjoy!
