In reply to Jeff Kagan
I disagree with this article actually. When did the author last use "Ok Google"?

I use it pretty regularly and it's reached the point where it often gives a better reply than a human would.

I use it for lots of things, but here are a couple of examples:

I was in Hyde Park at the weekend. A tourist came up to me and asked where the Four Seasons hotel was. I pressed a button on my phone and said "Ok Google, navigate to the Four Seasons Hotel". Just a few seconds later, a map appeared with a line from our current location to the hotel.

When reading, Ok Google has replaced my dictionary. I'm finding that even with words I don't know how to pronounce, Google still guesses correctly almost 100% of the time. It's actually astounding. Reading a medical book recently, I said "Ok Google, define 'arterial occlusion'". A couple of seconds later it read out a detailed definition. It almost never fails to recognize a word on the first try.

Salesforce Commerce Solution Guide
What do you see as the biggest obstacle to mainstream adoption of video calling?
Too many steps are required to reach a contact.
Video quality is often poor -- dropped calls, frozen images.
There's no advantage to face-to-face communication in most cases.
Too many people feel uncomfortable on live cameras.
There are too many security and privacy issues.
The trend is away from personal engagement and toward texting.
The obstacles are fading, and video calling is well on its way to adoption.
