"Alexa, please change the headline."

Alexa?

Where is Alexa???

Our apologies - we had Alexa in the headline but Google Home in the comparison.

We are expecting an Echo Dot for review and will post separately about how Alexa works in that article.

This is an evident impartial review. The writer is obviously in favour of Android assistant.
I haven't tried them with a iOS device, so i can't tell anything about SIRI. Comparing Cortana to Android I didn't had so many difficulties like you using Cortana.
Not mentioning the fact that probably the writer chose the comands that work better on google.
Not mentioning the fact google don't understant neither 90% of words if you talk normal (fast, non slow, not so near to microphone).
There are of function Siri or Cortana has that Google don't have (and vice versa).

The problem is that in every slide you underline the negative points of Siri and Cortana, exalting Google, even when it's not completely true what wrote. Like the "send a text" quest.

I don't personally prefer any of these assistant, I just like them grow more and more, but this article is just disinformation.

Said that i will deleted my account, created just to tell my opinion on a non-objecive article.

A lot of people don't know that Cortana can actually set reminders for locations such as "Hey Cortana, Remind me the next time I'm home to feed the dog." Cortana can also do reminders for specific people that display the next time you call them, they call you, or text or email... such as "Hey Cortana, remind me the next time I talk to Eric that we need to discuss the bills." These are very powerful an often overlooked. I'm not positive but I think Siri and Google Assistant can't do these.

You are correct - those are very handy and I have used location/people based reminders many times.

I wish articles like this one compared them because those two types of reminders would help others understand that Cortana does have some tricks up her sleeve. Could it be updated with those? I'd love to know what the other two assistants do in those circumstances too. Great article nonetheless.
