Despite being primarily a voice device, the mobile phone is largely controlled by non-voice mechanisms. Keypads and touchscreens continue to act as the primary modes of input. However, handsets now sit on the cusp of full command and control through voice, largely being fuelled as smartphone platforms play catch-up with Apple’s Siri.

This report provides a comprehensive insight into the growing importance of voice command, control and search on handsets, analysing the impact this shift is having on the entire mobile ecosystem, from platform owners to OEMs and from carriers to web-content providers.

ARCchart forecasts that 1.8 billion mobile phones with some form of voice control functions will ship globally by 2016, accounting for almost 90% of the handsets shipping that year.
