Smart speakers is an arena that’s attracted Big Tech companies including Google, Apple, Amazon and Facebook. All four of the mammoth companies have built their own devices that are meant to serve as tech hubs in peoples’ homes, opening new gateways for the companies to sell more services and advertising.
