The Re-Mediation of Consumer/Brand Relationships Through Voice Shopping: the Case of Amazon Echo

The third paper studies how voice assistants re-mediate consumer/brand interactions. The empirical study on amazon echo finds that voice assistants background visual clues and thus challenge consumers’ sense-making in purchase decisions. This paper outlines three consumer tactics in voice shopping FMCG products: (1) habitualization, (2) commodification, and (3) delegation.
