These Are Google's Best Black Friday Deals

The battle of the mini smart speakers continues this Black Friday and sell-out possibilities are high

Hey Siri, how do I make you suck less?

To be clear, all you are doing with this new feature is creating a Siri Shortcut which then launches the Google Assistant app and starts it listening for a command.

Siri and Google Assistant pretty much offer the same experience and functionality these days so this move seems to be most appealing to Android fans who are forced to use an iOS device for work or the like, but is still an interesting development in the ongoing AI wars that will no doubt see the extinction of us all. So yes, you can say "Hey Siri" followed by "Ok Google" to trigger Assistant handsfree on your iPhone.

The shortcut you'll want to set up immediately for the Assistant is one that simply launches the app and triggers its voice recognition.

A new report from marketing agency Stone Temple Consulting confirms what we knew already: Google Assistant is the most efficient virtual assistant as compared to its top rivals. But when it comes to a personal assistant, Google has a better reputation in many aspects for its different features.

Although Google Assistant has been available on iOS for a while now, actually accessing the voice-activated assistant required launching a dedicated app. For example, if you use the default "OK Google", you'll have to say, "Hey Siri, OK Google..." and then issue your voice command.

Siri is great and all, but it is no match for the Google Assistant at this point in time. This will make it easier for iOS users to ask Google questions while being completely hands free. The limitation of needing your device unlocked means these shortcuts can't ever run in the background, but besides that drawback, the possibilities for integrating the Assistant with Siri are extremely broad now.

Whether you need a smartphone, smart TV, smart home assistant, or smart charger that turns your smartphone into a smart home assistant that can control your suddenly smart TV, Google's Black Friday specials might have what you're looking for.
