Surprised Seniors LOVE Alexa & Google Home? Don’t be…
You might be initially suprised to learn that seniors are quick to use Alexa & Google Home on a daily basis. Even the advanced eldery quickly understand how to interact with smart speakers and make use of the devices daily.
While millennials often lead older individuals in their adoption and use of technology, the release of Amazon’s Alexa in November 2014 was different. The baby boomer generation was among the first to purchase Alexa devices and begin using them for simple tasks such as adding to shopping lists and setting alarms.
Today, Alexa & Google Assistant offer more than just a reminder – they offer utility and companionship.
Here are Just a Few Example Phrases:
User question: “What’s for dinner today?”Response: “Today, October 9th, steak medallions served with a pearl onion red wine sauce will be served at the BlueStraws restaurant beginning at 5:30pm. The Grill will be offering seasoned vegetables, potatoes and a spiced lentil soup beginning at 5pm.”
User question: “What are the activities for next Friday?”Response: “On Friday October 9th we will be showing ‘Hello, Dolly’ in the Sobrato theater at 2pm and again at 6pm. The 15th Annual Bridge tournament will commence at 1pm in the Meeting Hall on floor 2. And pending weather, bocce ball games begin at 2pm in the garden. “
