XAPPmedia pioneered voice interactive ad monetization for radio on mobile and is now working with VoiceLabs to bring that same value to radio stations with Alexa skills. Radio stations can offer their listeners an ad-free experience or they can take advantage of XAPP Ads on Alexa and develop a new source of revenue.
LOS ANGELES – October 4, 2016 —Triton Digital, a leading technology provider for the audio industry, today announced its representation of XAPPmedia’s premium interactive audio ads on Slacker Radio, a leading Internet radio service. This is in addition to Slacker’s own audio inventory and programming, which Triton Digital has been representing since 2010.
Mary Meeker of KPCB devoted more than 10% of her widely followed Internet Trends 2016 report to voice computing interfaces. In the 2015 report, voice assistants didn’t merit a single mention. What changed?
There is a voice assistant arms race going on between Apple, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, and Facebook. This is all about mobile. Each company recognizes that the mobile user experience often makes touch and type interaction inconvenient. Voice is simply a more efficient way to interact with a smart device – at least when it works.
One word can be used to sum up Internet radio in 2015. Growth. Higher numbers for listenership and advertising drove competition between labels and publishers. And, if you look at the top XAPP blog posts of 2015, you’ll notice it all comes down to money.
Consumers interact on mobile with a frequency and intensity that is simply absent in a desktop environment. You must produce a mobile user experience that considers both consumption and interaction to have a truly exceptional digital media product today.
