The Battle of the Digital Assistants – Cortana vs. Siri vs. Google Now

Digital assistants seem to be where the future lies. There will come a time when people will interact with their digital assistant as if it were alive. Today however, we have three major players and three digital assistants.

Cortana from Microsoft

Cortana, we would say is an immersive debut. It can be activated by tapping its live tile or a long press on the search button. The search button integration is a very smart move by Microsoft as it is a very easy way to get to Cortana.

Cortana initially will ask you for your name and its pronunciation. In addition to this, Cortana will request permission to access your email, friends, contacts, your location and your Facebook account. We suggest you permit this. It will give you a chance to experience Cortana properly. However, beware of providing details to Cortana via Bing.

Cortana also asks you some personal questions; questions that it uses to set topics of your interests.

In general, Cortana handles everything quite well. There are a few shortcomings which can be overlooked, considering Cortana is still quite young.

Siri by Apple

Although the first iteration of Siri completely bombed! And it was one of the few disappointing products from Apple, it has now improved a lot. However, the question is: Has it improved enough? And the answer – according to us – is No!

Siri can easily get to the basic facts. Providing cards and combining them with accurate responses. However, Siri becomes kind of dumbfounded when a more complicated question is put to it. Not just this, even some very common tasks were handled with a lack of sophistication by Siri.

A basic flaw in Siri is that it basically does what you tell it to do and not much else. For example, you can tell Siri to send you reminders that you have a flight to catch, but it isn’t intuitive enough to let you know that your flight is late.

Google Now by Google

Launched in 2012, Google Now has gone from strength to strength. It is by far the best digital assistant out there today. Google Now can even handle tracking packages.

Google Now’s real strength is its practicality, user-friendliness and invented proactive notifications. In Google Now, what one needs is actually close to their fingertips, when needed.

Google Now excels in answering your questions, searching through your email and location, suggesting places and reminding you of upcoming events. In other words, it gives complete integration.

The drawback to Google Now is that there are so many different flavors of Google Android out there, it makes accessing Google Now at times difficult and confusing. Although it is too soon to decide on one digital assistant – all three are expected to bring about significant improvements – for now at least, Google Now is ahead of the pack.
