5 Voice-over-IP Trends & News You Need to Know for 2022
Voice-over-IP has been around since the early 2000s, but it wasn’t until 2007 that it became widely accepted as a viable alternative to traditional landline phones. Since then, the industry has boomed, with more people moving away from their traditional telephone lines and turning to internet-based calling services in order to save money and take advantage of features like real-time call recording. Voice-over-IP (VoIP) has been around since the early 2000s, but it wasn’t until 2007 that it became widely accepted as a viable alternative to traditional landline phones.
One of the most important VoIP trends
For the foreseeable future, VoIP is expected to be the most important telephony product and service offering. As long as Wi-Fi Internet connections are ubiquitous in urban areas (which seems likely), over-the-top providers will struggle with quality of experience and latency issues. The other major challenge they face is regulatory interference. Traditional telecom companies have a vested interest in maintaining their monopoly on communications infrastructure, so regulators will continue to scrutinize any attempt by OTT players to build out their own networks.
Another key VoIP trend
Ubiquitous Voice Technology (U-Voice) is a system that pushes services and products (including VoIP) through voice commands. One of the goals of U-Voice is to not be interrupted by artificial barriers such as screen size, time, and physical location. In short, with U-Voice, you will have control over everything from your PC to your robot vacuum cleaner. What’s more, even though it seems as if we are moving away from screens, there are now more ways than ever to get information on a screen. The idea behind U-Voice isn’t that screens disappear, but that all devices become more efficient in finding the right information and giving it back to us in an instant.
whether we’re looking at our mobile phone or an email on our desktop computer. So what can you expect in five years? In 2026, the way people use their computers will be unrecognizable. Not only because we won’t need a keyboard or mouse to interact with them, but also because people who use computers won’t need much knowledge about how they work – or even know what operating systems are. Instead of using technologies like Windows 10 or Mac OS, people will just talk to their machines: Hey Siri! Give me directions.
Yet another important trend you need to know
Voice platforms like Apple, Amazon, and Google are all building their own video messaging apps and integrating them into their existing ecosystems. Additionally, email companies like Microsoft, Yahoo!, and AOL have been adding features such as video and voice calls directly within the service.
This is a trend you need to know about because it will likely impact how many people communicate in the future. When you’re looking at what to expect in 2022 with VoIP, it’s important to consider not only who your customer base is today, but also what changes could affect that audience ten years from now. In order to be successful long-term as a company or individual who uses VoIP technology on an everyday basis, keep up with new trends that could affect your business.
Key predictions from industry experts
– In 2027, over 50% of all international travelers will use at least one VoIP service.
– In 2030, customers will be able to make purchases with voice commands while they are in the store.
– 2020 – Facebook and Google will be competing in the healthcare industry with bots that serve as health coaches.
– 2020 – 29% of people are not yet comfortable using voice-activated devices but by 2030 that number jumps up to 59%. The trend is becoming more popular because it’s a more natural way to interact with machines. Although this might seem like something out of a sci-fi movie right now, new apps and services keep emerging every day. There is still some hesitation among consumers about whether or not their information is safe when using these apps. But if companies are careful about privacy then there should be no problem at all!
And finally, my prediction about what I think will happen
1. The VoIP market will grow at a faster rate than traditional landlines in the next five years.
2. Backyard operators are no longer common in the United States. VOIP is taking over!
3. A whole new group of young people is leading a migration away from voice telecommunications, where making voice calls is just too expensive (and frustrating) when they could text or use social media instead and still get the same information and interaction with their friends, relatives, and loved ones.
4. Larger corporations will start installing Skype stations in lobbies so that clients can do video meetings rather than having to be physically present in person on site
5. There will be an increasing demand for international internet phone service – which is not available in many countries today. International phone service providers will take note and create offerings to address this need
