What is smart speaker plus Internet of things? I think it’s like an electronic servant who can understand people’s orders or follow the orders of mobile phones to perform tasks, so smart speakers have become the gateway to the Internet of things. In order to seize this opportunity, the major manufacturers have already begun layout.

According to canalys data: in Q4 of 2019, global smart speakers grew by 52%. Even under novel coronavirus pneumonia, the global smart speakers grew by 13% in the first two months of 2020. The smart speakers are so strong that the early layout of the major manufacturers has already achieved significant results. Smart speakers are so popular, what are their intelligence?

At present, some Bluetooth and WiFi speakers on the market are also called smart speakers. I think they should be called narrow smart speakers. There are intelligent things in them, but they are not enough to complete the functions of real smart speakers.

Smart speaker is so popular, what is its intelligence

What about real smart speakers? It should not only have the voice and song playing function of ordinary speakers, but also be able to understand people’s speech, so as to control other members in the network system and realize the scene, integration and intelligence of the home. Use voice or mobile phone to control appliances and other tools in the network system.

We can see that the smart speaker that is born in the network system and can control other objects is the living smart speaker. In this way, the smart speaker “+” Internet of things is not a small system, and the technology and funds needed for development are not affordable by ordinary enterprises. Therefore, in Q4 of 2019, niche smart speakers only account for 10.5% of the market, and most of them are large-scale high-tech enterprises with sufficient talents and funds. For example, there are Amazon and Google in foreign countries, bat (Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent), Xiaomi and Huawei in China.

According to media reports: China and the United States are the main consumer markets of smart speakers, accounting for 75% of the global smart speaker market, and will grow explosively in the near future. Let smart speakers into the home, voice assistant will be everywhere. In the future, every smart home will have voice interaction function. In the smart speaker market, it is a very big cake. Who doesn’t want to share a piece of cake?

So at this moment, what do traditional small sound enterprises think about intelligent speakers and the Internet of things, and how do they keep up with the trend?

Here are suggestions: first, continue to maintain their research and development of traditional speakers, stick to their main business; Second, rely on the technology of large enterprises and cooperate with them to show their own advantages. Of course, big technology companies sometimes look down on small and micro enterprises. But we should also try, in case we hit it off. Third, cooperate with small and micro high-tech enterprises and step into the intelligent speaker industry step by step. After all, capital and manpower are limited. Fourth, if the funds are sufficient, we can consider joining the board. After all, talent is the best productivity. Recruit and invest money. Of course, investment in science and technology is risky. The greater the risk, the greater the return.
