Virtual Assistants: here is what you need to know about us!

 
A few days ago I was thinking about how technology changed so rapidly in just a few years: in 2011 I was on exchange in Riga, and Whatsapp didn’t exist, nor the option of Facebook calls. I could still be in touch with my friends and parents by Skype, but we always had to arrange it by PM or email.
