    Google assistant vs Siri. It’s still bad I just can’t anymore. Useless crap.

    Could be better, but certainly far from useless.

    Siri can't even phone a restaurant in my iPhone 8 plus contacts. Instead, it goes straight to the internet and pulls up about 5 different locations for restaurants with that name. NOTHING I do or say makes any difference. It simply ignores the restaurant listed right there in my contacts. How is this ANYTHING but a useless piece of garbage?

    It doesn’t go a specific thing you want it to do, fine. It does all the things I want it to do.

    Hyperbole isn’t helping you make a good point here. It would be like me saying “Siri is the best thing ever and it is perfect!!!”.

    Op your nuts!


    In my reality this is accurate.

    I really like Siri but if I were to be critical these facts and tid bits like who invented the game of basketball are things I really want to see improvement in.

    My first thought was “that’s a dumb question” but in reality it’s the kind of questions I want to know.

    However when I was using Android I would fault them in a similar manner. I would use it all day and when it failed I would check Siri then criticize google. I still do the same with Alexa which can suck at times and shine at others.

    Try Siri on MacOS, especially trying to play music from iTunes. You’ll quickly realize the amount of effort in the iOS version as it figures out wtf you are asking. Ex Play Benevento Russo Duo....yeesh!

    That is just a web search. Many here, myself include wouldn't feel that is an adequate answer. In this case its right but you would need to make the assumption its first web search result was correct since no where does it say James Naismith invented basketball.

    One particular use case that doesn't work (or perhaps doesn't work in your case) doesn't make the whole thing that can do all kinds of other things useless. Now, if that's all you are using it for, then perhaps it's useless to you, but that doesn't really mean that much as far as others go or how it all works beyond that one particular scenario.
