According to Comscore, by 2020, 50% of searches will be conducted by voice and 30% will be done without a screen. In fact 40% of adults are already using voice-based commands on a daily basis.
In anticipation of this growing trend, we're collaborating with Design Momentum to develop a discreet wearable phone that can be affixed behind the user's ear. It uses the XXXX technology which converts sound waves into vibrations along the ear canal.
Through this device, Optus customers will be able to access a voice-activated assistant, make phone calls, and activate audio-based apps such as Spotify and Audible.
