Does Siri make the strides needed to compete against Alexa, Cortana, and the Google Assistant? Or is there still a noticeable difference?
There’s still a noticeable lack. Shortcuts is a huge step forward...a means to let Siri into your daily activities while still offering you the ability to “shut it down”. However, I still give the leg up to Google Assistant. Can’t speak for Cortana or Alexa.
There will be a gallery with "most used" combination of actions.Customized Siri commands has a lot of potential for people who really want to use voice commands but the casual user probably sees it as too much “work”.
With that being said, is Siri now going to be usable? Good thing Google offers the Assistant on iOS.
My answer is I believe it will be. I’m still fascinated at the things G.A. finds and suggests to me on its own (future appointments, upcoming sporting events, etc). Siri doesn’t quite match that. However, it does what I need it to do...set reminders, make a call, send a text, give me a score. G.A. is more proactive whereas Siri is more reactive.
Next year, while Google is HERE AND NOW.drops next year?
