Microsoft releases two new ‘Cortana vs Siri’ ads, highlights the ability to ‘remind’ you

When it comes to personal assistants, many will agree that Cortana is by far superior to that of Siri and Google Now. Microsoft is aware of Cortana’s advantage compared to the other assistants, and has released two new adverts which highlight things Cortana can do compared to Siri. This time, both adverts focus on Cortana’s ability to remind the user of certain things.

The first advert shows Cortana intelligently letting the user know that they need to leave for an appointment. Cortana checks the calendar and then checks the latest traffic data to determine when the user needs to leave to get to where they need to be on time.

The second advert demonstrates how Cortana is able to remind the user to do a certain thing when talking to someone. For example, if you ask Cortana to remind you to say “Happy Birthday” to your friend Rob, the next time you’re texting/in a call with Rob, Cortana will remind you to say “Happy Birthday”.

Both adverts are designed to show you how much more intelligent and better Cortana is compared to Siri. Check them out and let us know what you think.
