Google Assistant and Siri wins and fails: Smart assistants are the comic relief we need in the AI era
Voice assistants are now virtually present on almost any device you could pick. Heck, some even have two or more voice assistants on deck though that provides little to no additional benefit.
Now that the Google Assistant has broadened its reach to any contemporary Android device and Siri has been a staple of all iPhones for more than half a decade, it's only natural that they have become an almost natural part of our everyday lives. We might not use them on the regular but communication with your virtual butler is getting more and more natural. Given that they're also becoming part and parcel of our houses, we've just seen the tip of the smart assistants' iceberg.
Just as we did earlier this year, we picked a bunch of slightly amusing fails and wins courtesy of the two most popular smartphone assistants, and while it's certain that you won't die laughing, some of these will hopefully make you exhale faster than usual.One thing we can definitely rely on the likes of Google Assistant and Siri is to voluntarily or accidentally provide us with fairly good doze of comic relief on the regular.
