i’d pay serious money for marques to be my voice assistant
Hw much we're talkin
Anyone else shocked by how lowkey good Bixby has become. Nobody took it seriously when it first came out and now it's looking like an actual competitor.
The thing for me with Samsung there's no reason not just make your phone a Google phone you can get Google assistant to be your default and I don't see any reason not to do that
Glad samsung didn't give up on it. Unlike how Microsoft gave up on cortana
@craazyy22 That Bixby button was so clutch for me. I bought my S10e specifically after hearing about the update. Launch whatever I want and still have Bixby when I needed it.
Congrats on 1500 total videos! Thank you for providing incredible content over the years.
@Sebastian Gomes 😒
@Michael Antonio that's kinda racist but funny xD
You've got brown on you.
I use Google Assistant 90% of the time, but I also use Bixby on my Samsung for those times I need to go deep into my phone settings and app controls. The combo works great for me!
I think the biggest shocker in this test was how far bixby has come from when it started. Legitimately it used to be an extremely bad experience and now its interface is arguably better than siri! even tho it is based on google its amazing how much they have improved it and I hope it keeps getting better and better.
siri's interface has always been incredibly ugly
In my opinion, Bixby's translation is superior then any other translation that I've ever used in terms of accuracy when it comes to translating different words and even long phrases!
It’s pretty damn disappointing to see how far Siri has fallen behind given that it was released first. Google Assistant is hands down the leading voice assistant right now.
Siri in English it's definitely questionable.. but in Dutch and French it's just useless storage space
Nah, It was always a piece of overrated garbage
Now wait for microsoft to give OpenAi's GPT a real person's voice.
Google Assistant has always been the best and Siri has always been the worst.
@aaatttserif youre asking the device to do so, youre literally giving it permission, so it’s the same as doing it yourself. So no, it’s not bc of security.
Another big plus for Google assistant is the ability to speak to it in multiple languages (without changing its settings). It can handle two languages pretty well (German and English in my case) but it went all downhill when asked it some basic questions in french. Now it answers some times with weird french responses when i’ve asked something in German or English. Also try to ask Siri “How many days until next year’s Christmas?” Apparently it’s always in 7 days 😂 Google can handle it by the way and of course both can handle the more easy “How many days until Christmas?”
Definitely interested in the ‘next gen’ conversation.
I think it is more convenient to use a voice assistant specializing in the area. While Google and Siri are specialized in Anglo-American areas, Bixby is highly optimized for South Korea(of course, Samsung is a Korean company), far superior to other assistants. This is part of how developers are trying to satisfy local consumers and is a very natural but interesting result in this regard.
I would love to see this expanded and include in-home devices & car assistants. I personally am all in on Alexa atm strictly because I already have a firestick on every tv, but now you've got me thinking.
I’ve watched many review videos, but this is the first one that I actually enjoyed watching from start to finish 👍🏻 Good job! 🎉
This is about what I expected. Siri has a lot of work to do; nice job!
Lamarr!!! Where you been at?!?
@Collin Personally I would never switch to IOS. Its just too basic for me being a tech guy. I also absolutely can't let go of the file manager, which is a big hole in IOS's system. Same goes to downloading apks or mods of different apps. Basically the way I see IOS compared to android is that IOS is a max security prison, where you are trapped in a single cell but with only basic necessities available. Android is like being in the wild, everything is there for you, but you actually have to chase it, it's not simply placed in front of you. Id recommend an iPhone to a busy person, one that doesn't use a phone as much, and only requires the basic aspects of it. Iphone also screams luxury because a couple years ago it was the top thing money could buy, and while it isn't true anymore, the stereotype still sticks around. This is what's keeping it alive, the brand name. It's like jordans. Not a particularly good shoe, and usually sold far above what it's worth, but stays around due to the name.
@panatha tube you're just saying things that suit your bias. I mean, Marquez didn't even say you couldn't do routines. He said there's no smart speaker control.
@DKM1129 Apple apologist entered the chat.
@DKM1129 of course it's a good thing. By the way Bixby can do routines too contrary to what Marque says
It's also a language question. Alexa is far better in Spanish than any other. Except perhaps Google Assistant, but in my experience having Spanish speakers say the hotword to Google is enough of a hassle for most of them to prefer alexa
Nah great for Lithuanian
For portuguese, Alexa is far way better than the others. Specially if you mix languages (Like when you ask for a music with english title in Spotify but talking in portuguese). Siri never understand nothing in portuguese 😂
W Finnish it's not as none of the assistants rly support it. Just going w English
@Kin B It works fine with hindi (Indian language) too
Didn't even think about this, I feel bad 😂
What wasn't mentioned is the real time interactive goggle translate function in Google assistant. My Pixel 7 Pro has it as does the Pixel 7. Don't know about any others. It works flawlessly and what makes it so handy is that it works continually as I speak translating from one language to another on the fly and remains contextually sensitive to the content of the conversation which is where the Google assistant excels above all others
Love how compared to other channels (like Mrwhosetheboss who I still like but he sorta sucks at tests), you aren't just scoring the assistants with points. You actually take into account pros and cons. And those continuing conversations don't end up causing major damage to the scores of assistants that tap out by chance because of the question order.
Would love to hear more about Matter! We use a lot of Apple devices but our smart home is tied heavily to Alexa and I’ve really been wanting to make the switch. I’m so tired of Alexa trying to sell me on additional Amazon services and skills when I just want to set a timer
Great video and subject! I am still surprised that this kind of tech hasn't gotten further than it has after all these years of research and massive resources. I am not surprised that Google is still way ahead of everyone else.
Thank you Marques for talking to phones for hours for us😂
@Akash Agarwal no one really. Of course he gets paid fat stacks, he's one of the biggest and best tech youtubers out there. He's honest and upfront about things that bother him in his reviews which makes him reliable. The millions are very much well deserved
@Zach Am I not allowed to compliment my favourite CS-tvr? I can’t help it if he’s so cool and wholesome all the time. Why can’t we all be like him? He’s just such a likeable guy. 😍❤️
@Mohsin Uddin Bro chill. You look like a bot
@FxMaster Wongi get an 8 plus
Google Assistant also has rather good voice 'training', from what I've found. My mother has a thick Indian accent sometimes, and after just saying a few phrases into the phone using the voice training setting, the assistant can not only detect her voice but it can differentiate between my voice and hers very easily. It's so accurate that when I speak to the same Google Home device, it recognises that it's me and speaks back with the voice I selected (Aussie Woman) and any connections to my account (if I have Spotify Premium, only my voice can command it whereas when someone else talks the assistant responds very differently). That's one thing I haven't really seen done well, if at all, on other assistants. They just can't support multiple users on one Assistant device to such a great degree of accuracy, not like Google. Google wins hands down.
There’s one really key topic you missed. CarPlay/Android Auto - I switched from Samsung to iPhone and the thing I miss the most is google assistant while driving. You can’t ask Siri to google anything while Google Ast would still read from google and answer your question.
Matter would be a super helpful video, having it explained in practical terms would be awesome
all the best buddy🎉🎉 congratulations🎉 let's talk on telegram you've been randomly selected among today's (GIVEAWAY)🎊
Overall, really informative and well researched video. I’m deep into the Apple ecosystem, so that’s the only one I have experience with, and I recognize all that’s said about it. Only two things I’m not too sure about if they can be held against Siri though, and that’s multiple timers and Netflix. Both these examples rely on other apps that don’t support the requested features. Apple’s Timers app simply doesn’t do multiple timers on iPhone (for whatever reason), and Netflix simply refuses to open up their app to Apple’s services, leaving it a black box that Siri just can’t interact with. So for both of these I feel it’s not fair to expect the assistant in question to activate functionality if that functionality simply doesn’t exist on device.
Hound worked the best for the conversational thing about six years ago. It was incredible at it. Look up some old videos to see it in action. Now, they became SoundHound and don't seem to support the same sorts of search on the Hound app anymore. It's a real shame because I had hopes we could ask difficult, natural-voice questions and get perfect answers. Now, it seems borked. I miss using it and rarely talk to Siri unless I'm cooking and need a timer, and then the "only one timer" thing screws me up.
Alexa getting lost and just searching the app store for Amazon download is hilarious
Lets be real, who uses alexa on a phone?
Yandex Alice is much better in everything, except it’s only in Russian)
@gmansplit You think you're so smart, I'm a bot, huh? Well you've just advertised your incompetence, split.
"Well, I can't answer his questions, maybe at least I can sell him something?" :)
Should have tested how well they can pick up your voice, I'm always pretty surprised when I leave my phone on the coffee table in front of the TV and even with the TV on it'll still set timers for me no problem while I'm in the kitchen cooking, so it is rejecting the audio from the TV (usually a podcast or something with lots of talking) that is closer and likely louder than me and responding only to what I am saying. Honestly though I think the game changer will be ChatGPT (or similar AI) integration so it can really understand the conversation properly and can respond to things much more naturally. I'd love for it to read recipes out for me and be able to ask things like "what do I do after putting the carrots in?" or "what temperature should the oven be set to now?" and have it be able to actually work that out.
Nice video. Would be great to have a video on Matter and Thread, ideally also speaking with companies such as IKEA to explain how their existing ZigBee products will integrate. This goes for Google also... Will they update all their capable products to Matter, or will products such as the Google Home Max speaker be needlessly left out.
1:35 I believe the timers problem has more to do with the Clock app’s limitations than with Siri herself. After all, Siri just uses what is in-stock. If you open the Clock app, you won’t be able to set multiple timers either…
@snakeyezZZ Oh, really?! I didn’t know that!! Of course they did… 🤦🏽♂️ But, again, that is not a Siri herself problem, it’s an app design issue.
yeah, but apple designed the clock app also.
Props to Samsung for bringing Bixby to the point that it is. I use it almost every day and I've done so for a few years. It just consistently gets better and better. I hope to see a video soon of how well each assistant interacts with it's ecosystem
yeah it is almost an Google Assistant with Samsung skin! If it works, do not change heh?
Thank you for this video. I use my iPhones assistant quite heavily, especially when using CarPlay. I’ve noticed steady improvement, but having had some experience with Google assistant, I do wish Siri would up it’s game. ✌️
I'd be genuinely shocked if Google assistant isn't still the best. All other assistants have improved significantly, but Google assistant just does it...better 😅
Something I’ve noticed tho is the Google Assistant has gotten progressively worse in the smart home at controlling accessories whereas Siri has vastly improved. This is coming from someone with both HomePods and Google Nest speakers in their house.
Not all other assistants have improved - only Bixby I'd wager. Siri and Cortana regressed,
@Hydration Homie Play music remains the best music player google ever had. CS-tv Music routinely pisses me off when the shuffle list turns into playing multiple songs from the same artist or into multiple songs from the same album in album order.
@quangluu96 this the one Apple should focus but they won't focus on something that won't benefit and earn them so much money so...
Having Google Assistant built into my phone is the one thing I miss since switching to iPhone. Like you said, Siri is fine. I have a Homepod mini and it does fine with the basic smart home commands (turn on x light, set the temperature to x, etc) I say to it 95% of the time. But when it messes up it's always a headscratcher because it's something that worked fine last time.
Been watching your videos for years. Definitely one of my favorite creators and this video is just another masterpiece. Designs, content, transitions, etc…. *chefs kiss*
I think one thing that should be taken into consideration is how localized Siri is - it works very well with for example NBA players, but when it comes to soccer it just pops up with a web search. Google Assisstant seems to be a lot more global in this regard
I think it would be interesting adding in the test the amount of different accents the voice assistants can recognize especially with different questions.
I can note, I have used both the google audio and the echo dot 3rd gen for a really long time. (mainly for smart home control) and I can say that alexa wins by a big margin. When talking about assistants in smart home, you want them to be quick and easy, and this was the case with alexa and not google assitant. It sometimes takes up to 4 seconds for google to response while alexa takes mainly under a second. The activation command is also way more easily picked up by alexa over google assistant. This also with less misfires
I still think Cortana sounded the best, she’s just not smart 😂
Agreed. Her voice was really good. Maybe even the best. She even sounded lively and funny.
@Taylor Nicty holy hell no! Only optional... i am barely ok that windows is spying on me.
@GTYellowJacket9 agreed. My Windows phone was my favourite phone experience, and I was bitterly disappointed when they discontinued it.
I miss Cortana..She helped me save the galaxy by destroying these huge ring structures from blowing up the entire galaxy.
They should add Google Assistant to windows
I wish Marques and Arun would do these battles with Alexa on a Fire tablet and Cortana on a Surface. Also have the apps installed and configured, to give each Assistant their best chance. So much of it is really about ecosystem lock-in and interoperability. It would also be nice to know what percentage of IoT devices and Amat home devices work with each platform. Like if you're going to shell out the money for a bunch of Sonos speakers, will you have to change phone to use all the features?
The last prime sale in October I went hard on echos. I bought 2 studios, 6 echos 4 dots and a sub. I'm no audiophile so the sound quality seems awesome for a smart speaker and I'm really enjoying it. Of course after I spend all that money all the doom and gloom about Alexa comes out. Hope it's not dead but just a bummer.
🤣🤣🤣 Money well spent, NOT!!!!
Incredible content as always! Much appreciated!
I switched from pixel to iPhone last year, mostly for FaceTime and airdrop, which was a huge plus with my job at the time. I will say the number one thing I miss is googles voice recognition software. It was so good. Freakishly good. Sometimes I would whisper to it just to test it, and it would STILL work flawlessly. Apple on the other hand… it was a big disappointment. Siri often misunderstands words, often to a hilarious extent. As someone who uses voice to text often, I really wish apple would refine their system. Google is simply light years ahead on this.
Maybe next time you can include the way the assistants announce messages/calls and interacting with them without touching the phone while listening to music and through earbuds.
I MUCH prefer this format. Its way better than having us sit through a bunch of ties or insignificant questions. This just gets to the meat of why we're here. Thanks!
@Heimen Stoffels There are still other CS-tvrs that do that.
I actually liked the old format better.
It's more frustrating for me given how annoying Google Assistant can be sometimes that it's actually the best assistant
Totally agree... And as much as Google assistant may be ahead of the rest.... It's really gotten a lot worse for me over the past 2 years in terms of comprehension - it's far too pedantic now and simple commands have just stopped working. And the home app / nest integration thing is pretty terrible
@thewaffle003 clear ram, setup the assistant from scratch and make sure the app is not optimized for better battery life
@Brolinit gaming Not the issue. Google Assistant randomly refuses to respond at random intervals and needs to be physically activated. Can happen for hours or days at a time.
@Brolinit gaming its google by default
@thewaffle003 if you have samsung then you're using Bixby by default. If not try "OK Google"
The conversational element is so critical. I’d love to see a deep dine on Matter standard.
The best tech reviewer on the planet for a reason, knows if the viewers get bored and skips putting up same questions and answers from each assistant like other youtubers do in their video to make the video long and not worth giving our time. MKBHD 🥇
I am a HUGE fan of Bixby's device control. It's really amazing learning how to use it deeply. I use Google Assistant for the facts and requests.
I’d love to see the notable differences between Google Assistant when launched on an iOS vs Android device.
Nope not for Crapple
With all the GPT3/chatGPT hype I really hope to see insane amounts of advancements/upgrades. If the voice assistant battle actually happens, I am sure we will see those insane improvements
@Jonathan Odude some prompts like timers or opening apps are definitely already handled on device for iPhones
@henkiespenkie44 who would know?
@Haz226 the assistants are cloud based too. apple made a big deal on how theyre going to add on-device siri requests for things like timers and opening apps. i still get the "siri not available, connect to the internet" response on occasion though so idk if they scrapped it or its not done yet or if its off by default
@KnowingBadger excuse, I meant that companies are not allowed to use chatgpt for their applications
ChatGPT is so good..
I never use the assistant apps because I don't mind just googling myself, or just starting my own timer, etc. But this was really cool to see how smart the google assistant is.
Bixby did a lot better than I expected, the improvements are insane
I would say the smart home element can be a little different. If you use Home Assistant, you can use a variety of different eco systems. I use Google Assistant to use Home Kit features
all the best buddy🎉🎉 congratulations🎉 let's talk on telegram you've been randomly selected among today's (GIVEAWAY)🎊
I had a Galaxy S8 Plus somewhat 3-4 years ago and it's really nice to see how much Bixby actually improved! Since I never had a Samsung device since I use Google Assistant anyway and the only negative thing is the response reliability... But that could just be a specific problem of my phone
YES on Matter video please! Also, would love to get your take on smart home tech outside of Google/Homekit universes - like Smarthings or Home Assistant
bumb for matter
It’s really cool to see how Bixby has improved over the years, from being one of the worst, to being a bit better.
Only wish Samsung released homepod competitor.
Can't wait until the refined version of ChatGPT starts getting into these Voice Assistant, I think it will be a game changer.
I think that he should've included the task of setting up the reminders. Surprisingly, Google is extremely bad at that. I switched to Bixby specifically for that reason!
I’m seriously looking forward to having GPT-4 incorporated into a voice assistant. With internet access it would be almost like the OS in the film Her.
⬆️⬆️Hey thanks for commenting, congrats you have randomly chosen for our today giveaway kindly follow the instructions above to acknowledge your prize vai Telegram❤ 🎁,,
One thing you dont give siri credit for is what you can run with automations. Some of these things, like taking a selfie with the front camera automaticaly can be enabled through shortcuts. I think this automatically has to make siri more powerful, granted they’re not enabled by default and take some tinkering to get right.
Hey great job, You did miss the "deeper" question aspect. My son likes to ask questions like, "In Zelda's Link's Awakening, how do you beat the final boss" or "In Stardew Valley how do I unlock the mining caves" We have both, Apple Homepod and Google home, Siri is useless for deeper / context aware questions like that while google assistant is great at it. I have an iPhone and still use the Assistant app for questions or morning routine stuff. Its sad actually. The assistant app also does not work well on iPhone, half of the time you have to restart it for the app to be able to use the mic.
Siri unfortunately sucks in CarPlay. If you ask it a question, 95% of the time it’ll never give you a direct answer and just tell you that she “can’t display web results in the car”.
@Duty Rover You can see what you are listening to and see the map at the same time with Android auto. 😂 You are so misinformed.
@Duty Rover oh by the way. Apple is following Google's foot steps with hording data from users to be an advertising company. Read up buddy. So I don't know what you are talking about not collecting data from it's customers. 😂
@DiiGiiTAL in what way? the only con is Siri but everything else apple is superior in. I can even see what im listing too and look at my navigation at the same time. can't do that with android auto
For the Siri users, audio, photo & video can all be properly configured to auto start/shoot on command through Shortcuts. Far from elegant but at least it's possible to have it.
I have an Iphone 14 pro and this is my first Iphone in my life, I only had google phones. God. I can't wait to get a Pixel next year. Ios is just garbage. and siri too compared to Pixel/Google assistant
Yeah it’s kind of like apples saying “fix it yourselves” tho
@mollerbt you can share shortcuts with her easily.... (still would make sense to make them work oob)
making siri shortcuts is such a pain
Good to know and all, but such a thing would be nearly impossible for someone like my mother to set up without help, as she and tech just don't vibe well at all. For her and those like her, the command just simply working out of the box makes a huge difference.
After over year of fighting with Google Assistant to control my home devices, I switched to Alexa (simply because Siri and Bixby aren't options for me). I've been completely satisfied with Alexa's ability to control devices and consistently run routines without the b.s. Google Assistant kept giving me. I don't have much use for assistants otherwise.
I've added a Siri ChatGPT API integration - I find myself using that quite often, I would love to see you compare these assistants to ChatGPT.
Can you elaborate on what you’ve done ?
I would love a much more in-depth video on Matter 1.0 and the future of that program!
I have the Pixel 7 Pro and using Google Assistant actually feels as if there's a tiny person in my phone answering questions and opening apps. After being with Samsung since the Galaxy S3, I plan on sticking with Google phones if they continue to improve upon the excellent 7 Pro.
Didn’t think of Matter making that kind of difference, but would be curious to see the change. Google’s assistant during conversation is pretty incredible, but surprised Siri is better sometimes than many think. Thanks for revisiting the comparison.
@Scaboodlezollotech is a apple fanboy. Not suprised he would say Siri is better.
"but surprised Siri is better sometimes than many think" what exactly do you mean by that?
Read this in your voice
Matter only makes a difference if you have other smart home devices, if you only have a smartphone then Matter is irrelevant.
For my smarthome stuff I do use Echo Dots instead of Google home minis for one reason. The amount of things you can setup in the app, specifically alarm customization. I use an echo along with hue lights for a light alarm, sound alarm and morning routine that are all tied together. With the alexa app on the phone I was able to configure all of this exactly how I wanted it with the sound, the fade in, the routine after w/ a custom playlist etc. With google I can tell it to set those alarms and can do some things via the app but it was clear it just wanted me to do it all voice command style but no matter what I did I could not get it configured how I wanted it. I tried for a week and eventually returned the google home minis and bought Echo dots again. I love google assistant on my phone and really wanted to to be seamless w/ my smart home stuff but there are things that I still want to manually configure on an app so I know it is setup correctly and I just don't trust voice commands to do that yet and google doesn't give that option from what I could find.
Oblique view: A few years back I purchased a Garmin car GPS unit and returned it when the same model number with Alexa was offered at a lower price. What I noticed there was that the Alexa integration highly improved the Garmin response speed and user experience.
In early 2020 I had a major accident at home and managed to use Siri to get rescued, but it was quite tedious and I ran into surprising roadblocks (I could make a call, but not turn on speakerphone without first unlocking my phone???). Just recently I had a similar style conversation with Siri and she asked if I needed her to call the emergency services! That seems like a big improvement (I'm in Australia by the way).
Very good job Marques! I'd be interested in a video about matter. I use Google for my smart home, but I have to admit that Apple is my first choice in terms of computers. However, I have a Pixel phone, because of the assistant, the price, and the ecosystem.
Coming from the Pixel, the Google Assistant needs a setting that lets you change only its volume rather than having to turn up the media volume.
I think what automatically makes an assistant good is if it can work well with boomer parents, in my case we have been early adopters of the Google home ecosystem and my parents have never had a blatantly frustrating experience with it not being able to do something, especially with continued conversation it makes a huge difference for them to use it.
@Jake77you've been in multiple comments tryna downplay Google and have been wrong with each one. If you hate Google then just say that instead of spitting false information especially to those who may be looking for useful information on products they might purchase in the future.
@MrPixel I've tried them all and tbh theres no significant difference. they can all turn your smart lightbulbs on and off, start a timer and tell you the weather. the google home and alexa apps are probably too complicated for the average boomer while siri just works. (google home is a complete mess)
True, although what I find frustrating with the boomers is how quickly they get sucked into every product into Apples ecosystem and refuse to try something new. The new Google devices with all their AI smarts are probably better suited to them.
I cant wait to see if Matter makes as much of a difference as I am hoping it does! I am DEEP in the Apple ecosystem and would love to see more devices work with it. PLEASE share any info you have and care share.
GPT 4.0 is gonna be crazy. Bing assistant will actually be competitive 😲
Profoundly fascinating. The Google ongoing conversation stuff especially.
Great video once again Marques !! , I'm really interested in your opinion around ChatGPT , and whether it will become a threat (or a partner) to all these assistants ??
It will die a natural death. Like all useless things in tech, once the hype curve reaches the crest, it will burst. You cannot rely on GPT to produce quality work at the moment.
Love the comparison. We're a completely Google household but in my experience I've been nothing but disappointed with the lack of improvement. It seems like it's worse and worse rather than incrementally better over time.
Imagine GPT-3 as your voice assistant. It would demolish every voice assistant out there.
my favorite part about assistant is definitely its ability to handle context. For instance, when i ask google home something like" how long after opening is greek yogurt good", it not only gives me the answer, itll also suggest another question. itll say" other people also asked ....." ive had like 5 min conversations with google and learned way more about something then id originally planned.
@Chris Hruska becasue siri uses wolfram alpha
I do that too but be careful because often the answers are absolutely wrong. especially math. its bad at math. Siri never messes up math, not for me ever. super strange.
Great video as always, Marques. Would definitely like to see a video on Matter and Thread. Just started to build my smart home and not sure if I should continue on the iOS route.
I think in terms of routine tasks, Bixby is the best. And it comes in handy when you want to use just one command for a bunch of tasks to be carried out
Would love a Matter update! I can't find any of the stuff yet. Maybe at CES? Will manufacturers embrace this? I've contacted a couple that were kind of "meh, we'll wait and see if it takes off." Kind of self fulfilling.
Another year of Google Assistant dominating the voice assistant realm. It's like other companies ain't even trying 🤷🏽♂️
Nobody is trying, the quirks Google assistant had years ago still exist
Yeah except assistant doesn't respond to "Hey google,"and it's been having troubles with this for at least a year and hasn't been fixed.
I've primarily been an Android user, but this is why I decided to get a Pixel. It's been amazing. The multi-timer function is a big deal for me as I use it regularly. It was one of the first things I noticed iPhone fell behind on. Additionally, those timers do not sync across wearables. Timers synced across the Galaxy Watches, but for some reason the Pixel watch is missing this feature.
congratulations👆👆 you've won🎉 some package let's talk with the 👆 above name 👆👆👆 only one on telegram...
It's amazing how good bixby has become. Specially along with bixby routines, makes a whole new experience.
Bixby is a lot better.
@Meh, shut up nah now Bixby has been more improved
Bixby routines now no longer uses Bixby on it's name. Samsung realized that people hates bixby and decided to not associate its best feature with the name
I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 9, setting up alarms with the main Bixby button is extremely smooth and honestly surprisingly reliable.
Thanks for this. It was very informative. Next time you do such a comparison, I would love to see you include how each handles accents. My wife is from Mexico City and her native language is Spanish. As such, Siri never understands her due to her heavy accent. And, while she could change the language on the phone to Spanish, she prefers to speak English as much as possible in order to improver her communication skills, so has left her iPhone in English.
I ain’t gonna lie to to you I’ve had all these voice assistants and have never once used any of them but I still find the video fascinating 🙌
I found it pretty interesting that you ask siri to queue up a song to play after the current one, and I find siri useful for quick single questions. overall I'm happy with siri just a few things can be annoying like she thinks you saying "hey siri" when your not.
Hello fan!! Thanks for being an active user and subscriber ❤️❤️ you have been luckily selected for the giveaway session 🎉
I first tried Siri before it was a Apple product. It is amazing to me how seemingly little Siri has advanced since then. Google Assistant is, in my experience, the gold medal winner here. Alexa gets a special award for butting in when you haven’t asked for anything. Luckily, she does not take offense when you tell her to shut up.
Any Idea why Google got rid of being able to set location based reminders? Seems like a weird thing to do since it was so useful.
Bixby is so damn underrated right now. Especially if you are into the Samsung ecosystem and use bixby in your galaxy buds with instant answer and stuff, it's just miles ahead of everything else. I'm glad Samsung didn't give up on it and it's actually improving it non-stop and absolutely focused on making it the best. With the current news of Google slowing down assistant focus, Bixby might very well become the top 1 if Google starts giving up on assistant. Bixby also has now processing in the phone itself and can do a lot of stuff offline. Also Siri has fallen behind so damn much...
@WIM Same as Siri on iPhones. Not very good, can't get rid of it either. However you can actually disable Bixby from everywhere and even make the hold of the power button activate another assistant of your choice. There are many ways, Samsung lets us do that in the most recent OneUI builds. Apple... not so much. Either you like Siri and you use it, or you don't like it but still get forced to use it
Bixby is so fucking annoying, I don't want it and I can't rid it off my phone.
@Yulia Linderoth You are absolutely right. It is sad to see that most of these reviews are based on English speakers. Quite some cultural biass.
Bixby seems to have these great features, but I won't switch over to it before it adds more language support. It's to silly for me to have a calendar with events in my non native language. :/
I've a Samsung A53 and I use Google assistant the most. The fantastic thing about Google is that I can talk to it both in Italian (my native language) and English. For me this has so many benefits but it's not possible/working well enough on both Siri (on my iPad) and Bixby. But I still use Bixby for integrated phone features anyway 'cause I'm forced to
Nice one! Please include commands like "turn on the light in the lounge", followed by "make it half dimmer" -- via a phone.
I'd like to see something like this video about the ability of the assistants on different languages than English.
That's very interesting because as a home assistant I really prefer Alexa. Yes I am in the ecosystem. I have a fire TV stick and Amazon Music. My roommate also has Google assistant and it can be really frustratingly bad
Interesting video and would be really helpful to those who is looking to buy any of the voice assistant devices.
Matter integration would be a very cool topic to talk about, especially if MKBHD does it :).
Not many Matter devices yet, so almost nothing to talk about.
@Pumbi I know I know but watching a video were he only talks about home integrations between companies and matter would be very cool.
He did talk about it in his podcast
Would be really interested in 'Matter' and cross compatibility. Stuff like HomeKit working with Google Nest speakers and so on? I know Matter V1.0 will not take care of cameras etc, but smart speakers, plugs, bulbs and integration across the different services. :) thanks as always for such a great channel!
Humming to Google Assistant to identify a particular songs is a dope features that Siri lacks, I don't know if Bixby or Alexi can do it tho
Switching channels in Spotify with Bixby is just so easy! I love it!
