Study: Voice assistants are having trouble becoming a habit with consumers

According to the findings of a new study carried out by Creative Strategies' Carolina Milanesi, the use of voice assistants -- like Apple Siri, OK Google, and Amazon Alexa, among others -- has not yet become a habit with average consumers, even though consumers have been more than willing to try them out.

Going by the findings of the study, Apple Siri has been tried by almost all iPhone users, but only 70 percent iPhone owners use it ‘sometimes’ or ‘rarely.’ Similarly, though Android users excitedly try out OK Google, only 62 percent Android owners use it ‘infrequently.’

Though the link color experiment is probably just an A/B test being performed by Google on the back end, active discussions on Google forums -- and also the ‘#bringbacktheblue’ hashtag -- clearly indicate that people are scandalized by the move.
