Is Cortana Getting Worse?


The past few weeks or so, I’ve noticed that Cortana seems to be getting worse. I used to be able to say, “Hey Cortana, remind me to get milk the next time I’m at the grocery store” and most of the time it would create the reminder. Now, it frequently interrupts me and I have to keep trying or use the keyboard to finish the reminder.

Anyone else having this problem with creating reminders?

    I still make notes on my phone. Don't use Cortana, Siri, or any other virtual assistant. Because of some of the things you mentioned.

    Not surprised.

    After the season finale of Game of Thrones. I asked Cortana who is the actor that play Rhaegar Targaryan in Game of Thrones. Cortana thought I asked about information regarding a furniture store called Raymour and Flanigan. I did the same thing with Google Search (Assistant) and it got it right.

    I don't know about Siri, but Google Assistant has been quite perfect.

    Funny, but I one time asked Cortana about Daniel Rubino of Windows Central blog...I said "Hey Cortana ....who is Daniel Rubino" it came back information on Daniel Rubin the hockey player. Again, I did the same thing with Google on the search page and it got it right.

    All in all Google Assistant has been nearly perfect with me.

    Relax, Cortana is still in Beta in most countries (those that have Cortana) Just wait a few more years and Microsoft will have basic assistant features, like being able to tell you the time, sorted.

    Cortana's not really much of an 'assistant' then is it. It's not assisting you in any real way, just making your job harder. Best assistant for making a list or reminder is the post-it. Never let me down yet!
