Video content creators must improve tagging, titles, and meta-data automation—and fast.
In 2020, more remote controls will be equipped with voice recognition systems. Subscribers to Comcast’s Xfinity already have access to voice-controlled remote controls, which allow users to search for actors, ask questions about shows, and bypass the button-navigated menu system to quickly find what they want to watch.
We tend to associate remote controls just with our televisions, but you can expect to see new uses for remotes in the years to come. However, as digital voice assistants become more integrated with various consumer electronics, smart remotes will give way to embedded speakers and microphones within our devices.
TCL Roku TVs will soon be equipped with far-field microphone arrays. Samsung will keep its remotes for now, but they will start to rely heavily on its smart assistant.
All of this sounds exciting—unless you are hoarse, are a non-native English speaker, have a thick accent, or are unable to speak.
