Siri vs Cortana vs Google Voice Assistant Test
Siri not only understands what you say, it’s smart enough to know what you mean. In the ongoing Siri vs. Google Now vs. Cortana battle, a new AI benchmark tests compares the voice assistants of Apple, Google and Microsoft. But which virtual personal assistant is the best?
Siri kicked off the voice-enabled personal assistant trend, but she now has two big reasons to look over her shoulder: Cortana for Windows Phone, which is smarter in some ways, and Google Now, which many Android users have come to love.
To see which assistant is best, we took Cortana, Siri and the Google Now assistant for a test-drive, using the iPhone 5s on iOS 8.1, the HTC One M8 on Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1, and the Samsung Galaxy S5 (Android 4.4.4). After six rounds of competition, evaluating everything from speed and accuracy to the interface and special features, it turns out that Apple is still in the lead.
Video about Siri vs Cortana vs Google
Siri: Apple’s Siri is a fully voiced assistant that’s been available to iPhone users since the inception of the iPhone 4S, offering users the freedom to ask questions, set up appointments and reminders, and interact with the sassy digital diva by setting up a nickname and more.
Cortana: Microsoft’s assistant is based off of the character of the same name from Microsoft’s Halo video game franchise. Featuring voice actress Jen Taylor, Cortana is available to anyone using Windows Phone 8.1. In some cases, you’ll receive your results with a computer-generated voice that is, admittedly, a lot less interesting than Taylor’s.
