I’ve been using amazon Alexa (with sonos) and have a pretty great experience. When I use Siri it is frustrating and terrible. I think the new update it’s gotten even worst. An example is I’ll use Siri to restart a podcast on my phone and in the past she used to. Now she needs me to unlock my phone. Well when I go to my phone the podcast app is right there to be restarted. But other things like that are bad. It’s just a terrible experience. I can’t imagine that it’s going to get better. I wonder what Siri is actually useful for. I wish Apple would either fix this program or not develop it. Oh and the constant need for internet is irritating. Sometimes I’ll leave buildings and she won’t work (although I have internet access).
