What is a voice notifications app?

A voice notifications application is a web, mobile, or desktop application that enables users to speak and receive spoken replies. The app may be used for a variety of purposes including interacting with voice-enabled devices (e.g., turning light on/off), downloading updates from news services, setting reminders, checking weather conditions, getting directions, etc.

Voice apps are similar to real-time communication apps, such as messaging apps, voice calling apps, and video calling apps. The most popular voice notifications application today is Alexa.

How to successfully grow your voice notifications application

A voice notifications app can increase its user base by attracting new users and converting them to paying customers. One way that a voice notifications app can do this is by offering high-quality voice alerts that are customized to the user's preferences. A voice notifications app also needs a large pool of voice actors in order to create an extremely wide range of voice alerts for the app.

Risks and challenges of building a voice notifications application

A voice notifications app faces legal risk related to the handling of voice recordings and use of a third-party voice API. Apps that make use of voice input mechanisms must ensure that they have the proper permissions to access users' sensitive data, and should consult with their counsel on obtaining proper licenses and insurance protection for any automated transcription services they may require.
