Voice input has its place.

"Navigate to the UPS store on Princess."

"When does the LCBO close tonight?"

"New appointment for tomorrow 3pm, code review."

"Reply ok, see you then."

Each of these is significantly faster than inputting the request with a touchscreen, and much safer while driving. In the winter, voice control means no taking off gloves or even taking your phone out of your pocket.

It's just another tool, and on some devices, it actually works surprisingly well.
