The global number of VoLTE (Voice over LTE) users is set to reach nearly 5 billion by 2024, up from 2 billion in 2019, thanks in part to the rising popularity of smart speakers, according to a new report from Juniper Research. The new research forecasts that over 220 million smart speakers such as Amazon Echo and Google Nest will be used to make calls to landlines or mobile phone numbers by 2024, enabling new engagement channels that operators can offer to brands and enterprises.
