Which one is better Siri or Google Assistant:
Well at the moment it is hard to say if Google assistant will be able to beat Siri on iPhone. Simply because, Siri can be accessed from lock screen or tapping on screen. Siri can support multiple languages but Google assistant only supports English. On the other hand, Google Assistant works with text commands and is integrated with large number of applications, Home controls and supports third party controls. So, we can say both applications have a fair share of tricks to entice users.
Google Assistant was first introduced on the Pixel phone. It is now available on more Android devices and it could also come to other appliances. It is currently available on 100 million devices and with the introduction of application for iPhone this number will increase rapidly.
