Virtual assistants like Cortana, Siri, Google Assistant, and many others, are now the main feature of smartphones and tablets, so knowing which one is best could have a significant impact on what your next hardware purchase might be. Although they fear you of taking your jobs in future, you can use it in the meantime.
To check out how these different smart assistants sum up, we compared them as Cortana vs Siri vs Google Assistant.
Voice Accuracy and Speed
A user’s voice mainly controls a smart assistant, and so its ability to know when it’s being spoken to, and to comprehend what’s being said, is essential. Each one has a wake-up a word or phrase that it listens for, such as “Hey Cortana,” “Ok, Google,” and “Hey Siri,” which tells the smart assistant to listen and respond to what is going to be said next.
Google Assistant and Siri are better at picking up what you say, even when there is noise. Microsoft says Cortana has a good understanding of context, but it struggles much more than the other two. It can cope up best in a calm environment.
In the context of response time to queries, Google Assistant comes out on top again, consistently providing fast replies to requests. Cortana and Siri were both accessible, however. When the application is picked up clearly by the alternative smart assistants, Cortana can often edge out Siri.
Features and capabilities
Talking about the characteristics of smart assistant you use, they all assist the same essential functions such as the ability to set calendar events, set alarms, make calls, send emails and messages, and play music. But each also has its aspects and special features which make them unique in their own ways.
Coming to the usage of search engine and responding to queries, Cortana uses Microsoft’s own Bing search engine, while both Siri and Google Assistant use Google. But all three can make a reservation or order food for you if you know where and what do you want to eat.
Google Assistant also has a benefit for those who regularly use the Google search engine because it already knows a lot about you. Google Assistant will read the news to you on a Home speaker, while Cortana will do the same on a smartphone. Siri only likes playing music through Apple Music, while Cortana and Google Assistant work just fine with Spotify and music stored on your devices.
The main difference between them is what hardware and platforms they can integrate with. Siri works great with devices supporting iOS and cannot pull up with android and Microsoft, whereas Google assistant can work with Android, Microsoft as well as iOS.
Google Assistant wins out for now
All three smart assistants are fantastically capable virtual assistants. They have expanded their software capabilities and platform support, but Google Assistant seems to be evolving the fastest and most effectively. It is good at picking up what you’re saying and responds to your queries quickly. Its ecosystem support is broad and deep, letting you make use of it on your selected smartphone.
