Amazon’s Alexa vs. Apple’s Siri: a voice-assistant showdown!

July 4, 2017

With a bunch of different voice assistants on the market today, it can be tricky deciding what (or should we say, who?) is the best fit for you. On one hand we have stand-alone devices like the Amazon Echo and Google Home, then on the other we have voice assistants tucked away in our smartphone or computer, like Apple’s Siri and Microsoft’s Cortana.

Each device and voice assistant has its own merits and demerits, including portability, tone of voice, and currency, but arguably the most important is how well she – or he – can answer your queries and ponderings. Bonus points for throwing a bit of personality into the mix too!

We decided to pit two of the most popular voice assistants – Miss Alexa and Miss Siri – up against each other in a battle to the death (well, kind of!). We asked the same sets of questions to each voice assistant, and the results we got were a little surprising! We also had them try and converse with each other, with hilariously strange results. Check out the full video below!
