Those are just a few of the things I learned after staging a face-off between the three leading digital assistants. Apple’s Siri and “OK Google” – they’re not big on personification at Google – are now standard on smartphones; Microsoft recently added its Cortana service to Windows 10, so it works on PCs, too.

Note: Google Now is different from Cortana and Siri in that it’s designed with a more general audience in mind. While it is part of Android OS, Google Now also lives in an app for iOS, and can be accessed through the Chrome browser, too.
