Full Roundup of everything we can see from the Say It Now vantage point SUBSCRIBE HERE FOR FUTURE NEWSLETTERS

We’ve got a packed episode this month with a new case study from OVO Energy (full video here, slides below), new campaigns for Subway, JD Williams and an awesome sampling campaign for new Persil Wonderwash (Unilever).  Your invitation to see us talking with AudioStack about ‘AI in Audio and CTV’ in Cannes, a recent interview about ‘micro-negotiations’; but before we get into all that, there’s been a load going on in tech over the last month, setting the scene for a new dawn of voice agents…

This Monday, Apple gave Siri a massive upgrade, last month Open AI, Google and Amazon all showed how they are upgrading their voice assistants, in many cases changing their name to ‘AI Assistants’.  This all aligns with our vision of a voice enabled future and our mission of making it possible to ‘engage with every advertising message using your voice’.

These announcements will take some time to properly launch and make their way to everyday behaviours but the stand has been set.  We play into today’s consumer behaviour (E.g. 19% YoY increase in radio listening on smart speakers) and are ready and excited for what’s coming, just listen to any of our interviews.

What a time to be alive.

As ever, please get in touch if you’d like to dig deeper, we’re pretty approachable!
