It hasn’t taken long for smart speakers to gain a foothold in modern culture. Though the oldest standalone voice-operated digital assistants have only been on the market for five years, products like Amazon’s Alexa and Google Home can now be found in hundreds of millions of households.

Smart speakers are popular for a good reason. With a short voice command you can quickly and easily shop online, get news and weather alerts, control other devices in your house, or say, learn the entire filmography of Bill Pullman, all without booting up your computer or pulling out your smartphone.
