Pebble Time, Twilio and the Importance of Voice Communication
Smartwatches will account for 59% of total wearable device shipments in 2015, and they will command to just over 70% of shipments by 2019, says a recent BI Intelligence report. Now that Google and Apple are in this market space, you can be rest assured that voice messaging could potentially be the strongest feature for any wearable devices. In other words, can we say voice communication will become more mainstream than ever?
Kickstarter witnessed the recent launch of Pebble Time, a third generation smart watch, unlocking new horizons for the wearable device industry. Pebble, as we know, is one of the pioneers in developing smart watches. Lately, Pebble Time has advanced a step further with its striking feature of a Microphone on its chassis, giving voice communication a new dimension.
Voice interactivity through Pebble Time will not only provide the much needed scale but will also offer massive opportunities in terms of responsiveness, adaptability and improved productivity for business enterprises. Twilio’s voice application allows one to make and receive phone calls as well as send and receive text messages, using its web service APIs. This webinar will talk about the significance of voice communication within your Pebble Time, especially since a wearable device is like an extension of the human body. It will cover the nuts and bolts of Twilio and give a walk-through of the business use cases demonstrating the dual power of Pebble Time and Twilio.
