Despite the rise in sales of voice-controlled devices, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home, the difficulty of monetising content holds publishers back from innovating on voice platforms.

One of the panels at the Newsrewired conference will explore projects by early adopters and look at the benefits of investing in smart, speaker-friendly content.
“These technologies are still at an early stage. We will increasingly use our voice to control devices and access media because it is quicker and more convenient than touchscreens or remote controls”
