    Free Android iPhone Android Tablet iPad Android Wear ... KaiOS Website

    Google Assistant is a virtual personal assistant developed by Google and announced at its developer conference in May 2016. Unlike Google Now, Google Assistant can engage in two-way conversations.

    Assistant initially debuted as part of Google's messaging app Allo, and its voice-activated speaker Google Home. After a period of exclusivity on the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones, it began to be deployed on other Android devices in February 2017, including third-party smartphones and Android Wear, and was released as a standalone app on the iOS operating system in May. Alongside the announcement of a software development kit in April 2017, the Assistant has been, and is being, further extended to support a large variety of devices, including cars and smart home appliances. The functionality of the Assistant can also be enhanced by third-party developers.

    Users primarily interact with Google Assistant through natural voice, though keyboard input is also possible. In the same nature and manner as Google Now, the Assistant is able to search the Internet, schedule events and alarms, adjust hardware settings on the user's device, and show information from the user's Google account. Google has also announced that the Assistant will be able to identify objects and gather visual information through the device's camera, and support purchasing products and send money.

  • Cortana

    Free Windows Android iPhone Android Tablet Windows Phone ... iPad Website

    Fast, easy and fun to stay on top of work & life with your personal assistant Cortana! Bring your smart digital assistant to your phone to help keep track of the important stuff wherever you are, across your devices.

    Microsoft Cortana is your free smart digital assistant. She can support you by giving you reminders, keeping your notes and lists, taking care of tasks and helping manage your calendar. She can also help you make calls and send texts.

    Your smart assistant can give you reminders based on location—so you can set a reminder on your PC to pick something up at the store and she’ll alert you on your phone when you get there.

    She can also give you reminders based on contacts, and you can even attach a photo to your reminder.

    If you use Office 365 or Outlook.com, Cortana can automatically suggest reminders for the commitments you’ve made in email. So when you promise to do something by the end of the day, Cortana helps you make sure to complete your task.

    Cortana keeps an eye on your calendar, so if traffic is a mess and you need to leave early to make that meeting, Cortana’s got your back.

    If you need to find a fast answer or search for info on a flight or package, just ask. If you’re working on a task, like a budget, she can support you.

    Like any smart voice assistant, Cortana will find all kinds of info, give you weather and traffic updates and help you search, but Cortana is a truly personal assistant who gets to know you better all the time—so she can help track and find the things you’re passionate about, like your favorite artist or sports team, and give you better recommendations and updates.

    Your digital assistant can also help you set up and control Cortana-powered devices, including Surface Headphones, the Harman Kardon Invoke, and more.

    Microsoft Cortana, your digital assistant across your devices.
