Every year we see continuing advances in Technology. From smartphones to gaming consoles – there continues to be an enormous amount of hype built around new tech releases throughout the year.
This begs the question, which devices and tech end up being the most popular? Everyone wants the best trending tech, but how do we figure out what tech was actually “the greatest?”
We dug into this by compiling Google Trends search volume for devices (in the United States only). Then, we grouped these devices into several categories to compare: Smart Assistants, Smart Phones, TVs, Gaming Consoles, Tablets, Streaming Devices, and Virtual Reality. From there we created visualizations to pair with the data to analyze tech trends throughout the year and give some insight into where trends might go in 2018.
