WSJ: Google Assistant will use comedy writers to make you laugh
Of the three voice activated personal assistants found now on smartphones and tablets, Google Now has the least personality. Ask Siri to tell you a joke and she's apt to say, "How many iPhones does it take to...OK, never mind." Cortana also has been programmed to tell a corny joke or two. Ask Google to tell you a joke and instead of trying to tickle your funny bone, the virtual assistant will send you links to joke sites.
With much more personality than Google Now, Google Assistant will make its debut with the Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL. Both handsets will be available in stores and online starting on October 20th. Until then, you might have to get your daily fix of humor by reading the funny pages in your local newspaper, or by watching The Impractical Jokers on Tru TV.
