    I’m willing to bet you have some kind of automated best friend to help make your life easier. In fact, 20% of adults in the U.S. have access to a smart speaker.

    According to Google, 72% of people who own voice-activated speakers say their devices are used as part of their daily routines. The percentage is even higher for people who use their mobile phones for search.
