What We Want and What We Get from Alexa are Two Separate Things

posted by Aaron Zytle - 

Smart speakers like Amazon Alexa and Google Home keep getting more and more popular . . . and we've got BIG DREAMS for how they can improve our lives.

But unfortunately, for now, they're basically just glorified clock radios. 

A new survey asked people what they WISH their smart speaker could do. 

And the top answers are:  Help us learn a foreign language . . . help make us funnier . . . help make us more ATTRACTIVE . . . distract our kids . . . and give dating advice. 

But here's what we ACTUALLY use them for . . . 

Playing music . . . getting the weather . . . getting the news . . . help with basic cooking tasks like boiling an egg . . . and giving us travel updates.
