The world is running fast, so are we. Constantly, running with the flow to catch up with never finishing end lines. With more and more important information, we tend to lose track of trivial matters, with increasing workload we become lazy to do small things like turning off and turning on lights.
There comes the Smart Speakers, always at our beck and call, from waking up in the morning with alarm to making us comfy on bed lulling to sleep, carrying out simple commands given by us, relaxing us from bits of day to day chores.
What are Smart Speakers?
Smart Speakers are like Aladdin’s tiny Gennie, you just have to say the keyword to wake them, then say your command, and boom, it’s done! “Like heat up the water”, “Play Music”, “Heat my coffee”, “Switch off the lights” and lots more.
But for Smart Speakers to work, you will need a wide range of smart products, like smart light, smart fan, smart plugs in particular. Not only that, it can perform tasks like sending messages, calls, order online, record audio, read out things, and whatnot.
The most preferable smart speakers used now are Google Home, Alexa, and Siri.
• Smart Speakers come with their own intelligence and is awake 24 hours.
• They have in-built microphones, so they can communicate with you and operate the other devices accordingly.
• They are fully internet-reliable.
• They can perform varied tasks from sending messages on your behalf, opening locks, playing music, reading out schedules. They can control apps within the smartphone as well as other devices as per your commands.
- Smart Speakers makes our lives a lot easier and save us from some really boring tasks.
- They save a lot of our time and give us some extra time to relax.
- If you are one of the forgetful people, Smart Speaker can be a great help to you, reading out your schedules and giving you reminders of work.
- They can read out recipes to use while cooking, encourage us during morning exercises, help kids with their never-ending random as well as absurd questions.
• As they make our lives easier, we become too much dependant on them, so much so, that we cannot think our lives without them. This indeed can turn into a bad habit.
• They use the internet, so disturbance in network connectivity lessens their efficiency.
• As they work on Wi-Fi, they can be hacked. So, it’s safer not to share critical information with Smart Speakers,
• No matter how smart they are, they are not human after all, so there may be miscommunication. Misunderstanding commands lead to mishaps or wrong chores done.
• For Smart Speaker to work, you would actually require a lot of other smart technologies, otherwise Smart Speaker would just be a waste of money.

If you are one the tirelessly working person, investing their days and nights worshipping work, you deserve a break and bits of every opportunity to skip through some avoidable works.
So, Smart Speakers along with other Smart technologies are there for you, so that you don’t have to get up and switch off the light while relaxing, or having your breakfast warmed up while you are getting ready.
So, that you don’t have to pause in the middle of cooking to answer calls or open the door. Just command and have your job done.
