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.

- First place: Google's assistant

Siri correctly answered 75 percent of this year's question against 52 percent of last year's question.

- Fourth place: Microsoft's Cortana
