Best voice assistants

Tech News and Views

I have used many voice assistants: Amazon Echo Dot, Siri, Cortana and Google Assistant. The Dot is the poorest of the bunch. While it now sells for just $39, I guess you get what you pay for. Much of the time, when asked a question, such as what is the Asian dish, curry, Alexa will answer: "Hmmm! I don't know the answer to that". A recent study said that the Dot could answer correctly only 13% of the time. Google's Home Assistant was correct 73% of the time.

Alexa did best with questions about celebrities, geographical features, math and playing music.
