Smart speakers are great. But they can’t do everything. And people tend to be very specific and exacting about what they want their smart speakers to do.

The Verge news editor Chaim Gartenberg, for example, recently lamented the inability of smart home assistants Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri to control home appliances on a timer — for example, to turn off the lights after 30 minutes. He points out that they can set timer. They can turn off lights. But these features can’t be combined.

“setting your lights to arbitrarily turn off in 30 minutes is impossible with today’s most sophisticated, cutting-edge smart home technology.” — Chaim Gartenberg, The Verge

No doubt millions of other users have their own ideas about specific tasks they’d like their smart speakers to do.

That’s why Chatterbox (which is designed for kids) is winning fans among adults, too. Because Chatterbox doesn’t make you wait until the manufacturer adds features. You can add features yourself.

Chatterbox is designed not only to be customized, but also to be easily programmed or “taught.” With Chatterbox, it’s easy to create the ability to control home appliances on a timer. Or teach it to do whatever you’d like a smart speaker to do.
