Posted on: 28 mars 2019, by : Stuart Dredge

According to research firm Strategy Analytics, shipments of smart speakers grew by 169% in 2018 to 86.2m units globally, driven by Amazon Echo, Google Home, and devices from Alibaba, Baidu, Xiaomi and Apple among other companies.
At next week’s AIM Connected conference in London, the opening panel will be discussing “smart devices’ effect on streaming”. Ahead of the event, Music Ally gathered some views from speakers at the conference, about what these devices mean for music.
“Smart speakers are an effective funnel into purchasing a music subscription for a largely mainstream audience, one which might not have tried one otherwise,” says Gérald Youna, digital accounts manager at Beggars Group.
