YouTube channel TechAltar compares the functionality of Google Assistant and Microsoft’s Cortana in the video below. It is interesting to see the two virtual assistant side by side as their is a noticeable difference between the two, regardless of the question asked: speed. Google Assistant provided an answer more quickly than Cortana every time. And most of the time, they provided the same answer. Cortana did give more detailed answers to a few questions, such as provided a picture and additional information when asked what the height of Mount Everest is. But Google Assistant did understand context better when both were asked follow up questions. Watch the full demonstration in the video below.
