On the same day, Google also announced two voice control based apps: Allo and Duo. Both tap into Google Assistant platform. Google claims their Google Assistant platform is the best voice recognition system.

Voice recognition is also called voice command, or voice control. It is a very critical component for augmented reality, virtual reality, and artificial intelligence devices. Apple, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook are all working on this technology.

In the newly published “Sensors for Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence market 2016 Report,” Touch Display Research analyzed over 30 companies working on voice recognition. This report also analyzed the other 20 sensor technologies for augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and artificial intelligence (AI) market. These sensor technologies include: camera-based gesture control, ultrasound and radar based gesture control, eye tracking, voice recognition, photodiode sensors, proximity touch screen, motion sensor, short-range wireless, other touchless technologies, touch sensor and touch pad.
