Version Control: Hey Google, What’s A Connected Home?

WRITTEN BY: Pound & Grain

Google Home, Nest, Amazon Echo, the Apple Homepod. Smart speakers and connected homes are all the rage, right now. But what does it mean for the digital marketing landscape?

In Episode 29 of Version Control, we chat about connected homes. Have everything in your home including your phone, thermostat, television, and front door being connected is the new normal. Even Burger King acknowledged that tons of people of voice assistants waiting on standby in their clever marketing stunt. But are they really making our lives easier? Or are we creeping closer to HAL 9000?

After connecting over connected homes, the team also discusses their favourite digital news stories in Digital Picks. They chat about Google Home’s ability to multitask, Twitter’s update to highlight tweets relevant to articles you’re reading, Jim Beam’s bourbon assistant, and more.

If you’re a digital connoisseur, go ahead and tell Alexa, Siri, or Google to pull up Version Control on iTunes or Spotify, then sit back, relax, and enjoy Episode 29 of Version Control.
