The State of UK Voice Q1 2021 (download) is the second of our Voxly Digital Insights Report series; which takes an in-depth look at our original UK-consumer research into voice habits.

Top take-aways:

1. Voice is no longer a sparkly novelty:

Awareness and understanding of the technology has been rising rapidly in the UK. At the start of 2021, 7 in 10 of the UK public had used a voice-assistant in the last month.


2. Voice-assistants play a daily role in household life

Amongst UK voice-users, 85% use the technology at least weekly and almost half use it daily. Frequency of use has been increasing. In fact, over half of voice-users said they use voice more now than when they first bought it and the same number admitted that they now ‘rely’ on their voice-assistants.


3. Smart-phones are the main way people access voice-assistants

76% of the UK had used a voice-assistant via a smartphone in the first month of 2021. Smart-speaker usage wasn’t far behind though, with 63% having used one recently.


4. Smart-speaker owners are more engaged users with higher frequency habits

Amongst UK smart-speaker users, 63% use their voice-assistant at least daily whilst only 34% of smart-phone users use voice on their devices daily.

5. Voice Search and music are the biggest reasons to use a voice-assistant

71% of UK voice-users use it to search for general questions at least weekly. 1 in 2 use voice-activated devices daily to listen to music and 1 in 3 for radio.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
