Audio Experience pivotal to the satisfaction of Smart TV users

Display quality is now playing a minimal role in the Smart TV experience; two-third of consumers decide around the specifications of the TV while exploring their purchase.

An analysis of over 40,000 questions and reviews put across by users of Smart TVs on key ecommerce platforms reveals that the quality of audio delivered by the Smart TVs is pivotal in defining the overall experience. 

Contrary to the quality of the display, which was few years back an anchor differentiation for Smart TVs, users are now finding the audio experience as the key differentiator.  The users now understand the significance of audio in delivering the overall immersive experience while consuming their favourite content over Smart TVs.

93% of the users who attribute audio experience as the key differentiation do not attach any specific function of feature resulting in the same. 5% users attribute it to the speaker quality while remaining 2% specifically call out the reason as Dolby Atmos enhancement to their Smart TVs.

Other than audio, connectivity also plays a critical role in defining the experience. Smart TV users are looking for various connectivity options like Bluetooth, Dual Band Wi-Fi, etc., which gives them the freedom of connecting their Smart TV with various networks and accessories to bolster the experience.

Among features, voice assistant dominates the overall experience derived from Smart TVs.  Support for Camera is an emerging feature where users want to use their Smart TVs for video and conference calls as well.

OEMs of Smart TVs need to educate users around the significance of audio in the overall experience delivered by the device.  At the time of evaluating various options, the potential buyers are more concerned about the connectivity types and networks to make their decision to buy.  Audio capabilities stands 2nd, however, in terms of experience it anchors the specifications that a Smart TV comprises of.
