DALLAS, Dec. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Parks Associates research finds 49% of US broadband households own a smart speaker or smart display, driving voice to the forefront of the connected home consumer experience. Parks Associates is hosting the complimentary webinar "Voice Controls and Smart Home: Optimizing Product Design," sponsored by ULE Alliance, on December 3 at 11 am CT (9 am PT), to evaluate methods for product manufacturers and service providers to evaluate voice control technologies and integrate solutions into their offerings that will deliver high-quality design while ensuring quality of service (QoS).
