It would be remiss to write about the adoption of voice assistants on consumer devices without mentioning Apple. They have the ability to introduce technologies to a wider public because of their integrated structure, resources, and that their user base is less fragmented. They will rarely be the first to sell a technology, preferring to wait until it is more mature - and this only helps them promote it to the general non-techy public.

Siri has its roots in a DARPA project for triaging information to battlefield commanders.
