A6. “Alexa, Let’S Make a Trade”: Search Behavior, Trust, and Privacy With Voice-Activated Assistants

Through 16 interviews with owners of voice-activated assistants (VAA), we explore user trust and search practices as they occur in voice interactions with their device. We uncover preferences for visual elements and less cognitive search tasks when seeking information, as well as cautious trust in the device’s maintenance of privacy.
