    I think that's a bit of a stretch, I prefer visual confirmation of the info I need.

    I only use it when I'm on a go, for example, to check the weather without typing anything.

    But I guess the numbers posted in article assume that a lot more people will have personal assistants such as Alexa from Amazon, therefore voice searches will presumably increase.

    Interesting thoughts they offer there but I think the amount of LCD available in their neck of the woods is higher than in most other areas. I've never used voice to search online, although I do ask Siri to open a program here and there for me at times.

    I don't see Echo and Google Home taking off and being a household must but I missed out on Blockbuster when it went it went public and I had inside information so perhaps I'm talking out of school there.

    Perhaps voice search is a generational thing and long term will be the way people operate but then you would have to train the search engine to recognize your voice, accent and inflections.

    50% in 3 years is pushing the envelope but in 15 it may not be.

    Have to agree their time scale seems very, very optimistic. Stranger things have happened though.

    I've never used voice search. Maybe, it is helpful when your hands are busy, but again, if you are so busy (in driving or in any other important things) then u should finish your work and get back to screen and typing. I don't see a good reason - why someone will use voice search when his hands are free?
