As there wasn’t any new major updates or improvements in Siri for the past few months, one can clearly say that Apple’s voice assistant is not even in the game. No offence Apple fans, but that’s the truth. While Google has made its voice assistant advance in almost all the ways possible, the Apple on the other hand disappointed its fans on this regard.

If you want to give that position to Amazon’s Alexa, you are at the right place right now.
