Apple loses the battle of smart speakers before starting

This Christmas will be a magical, sweet and happy Christmas for everyone ... except for Apple's HomePod device. After opening Santa's gifts after Christmas Eve, the official Alexa application has managed to reach number one in the iOS App Store .

This indicates, without fear of mistakes, that Echo and other intelligent speakers of Alexa have been very popular gifts on these dates so indicated.

This is a precedent that marks the first time that the Alexa application has come to take the number one position in the iOS App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Alexa finishes the hopes of HomePod before its launch

The official application of Alexa has remained in the first place of the App Store for a day, currently holds number two in the Apple iOS store in the United States , in favor of YouTube that returns to the number one position.

From Amazon have mentioned that the Echo Dot device has been its best selling smart loudspeaker in this Christmas holiday, as well as "the most successful product of any manufacturing company in any Amazon category."

With so many users buying Echo devices for their Christmas gifts , there have been many downloads of the Amazon Alexa application in order to configure the smart speaker, control it and integrate it with other home automation products.

The analytical data collected by Sensor Tower shows that the Alexa application has climbed many positions in the iOS App Store in the United States between the 25th and the 26th of December . But he was also very successful in the United Kingdom, Germany and Austria.

It seems that Amazon continues to dominate the smart speaker market, while Apple's HomePod has delayed its launch until 2018. Apple's smart speaker will have compatibility with Siri, Apple Music and other functions that will allow users to obtain weather information, know the traffic, set reminders and much more. But ... will it succeed?
