How to teach your smart speaker to understand your voice

Not all smart speakers are created equal. In fact, some people barely meet the qualifications called "smart" in the first place, but they get better at answering your questions, provided they can understand what you are saying.

The investment company Loup Ventures has recently completed the performance of Google's assistant, Amazon's Alexa, Apple's Siri and Microsoft's Cortana by seeing how each assistant responded to 800 different issues. It also ran this test last year, and compared the results to see how much each smart speaker improved.

While all the tested assistants understood more than 99 percent of the questions asked by analysts this year, it does not mean that everyone always has a good conversation with their smart speaker. If your struggle to understand what you say, it won't have much chance of getting the right answers. We come to the training tips in an instant. First you see a quick look at Loup Venture's test results:

  • First place: Google's assistant
    Google's assistant answered 88 percent of questions correctly from 81
    percent in the December 2017 test – and understood all 800 questions. It was the most effective digital assistant in Loup Venture's analysis.
  • Second place: Apple's Siri
    Siri correctly answered 75 percent of this year's question against 52 percent of last year's question.
  • Third place: Amazon's Alexa
    Alexa answered 64 percent of the questions right last year and 73 percent right this year.
  • Fourth place: Microsoft's Cortana
    Cortana has 56 percent response last year and 63 percent this year.
