During the 2016 holiday season, sales of voice activated assistants soared. Consumers purchased Amazon's Alexa system (the Echo and her diminutive sister, the Echo Dot) at a rate almost 10 times that of the previous year, making the Echo Amazon's "most gifted" item of 2016. As more people become comfortable with spoken commands and queries, sales of these devices are predicted to grow. Analysts believe that by 2020, 11.5% of U.S. households will have a voice-activated system in their homes.
