Among the giants, the first to eat crabs is the e-commerce giant Amazon. In 2014, Echo smart speakers turned out to be born. This product that was originally sung by all walks of life was sold very hot. Now Echo can not only answer questions, set alarms, play music, control other devices, but also shop online. In the last quarter, through the east wind of the holiday shopping season, each manufacturer sold 16.1 million smart speakers.
The trend of smart speakers entering thousands of households will continue in the future. Canalys expects global shipments to reach 56 million units in 2018, up 70% from last year. The most gratifying thing is that smart speakers are not a three-point heat product, users will continue to use after the honeymoon period, instead of being thrown into the drawer to eat gray.
