Anyone else think voice commands are well short of best-in-class?

    Every major player in the industry – Amazon, Apple, Google, and I think Microsoft – has a voice assistant which requires no button to start or stop interacting with the assistant. It seems clunky to have to press a button to start speaking, and again to stop speaking. And natural language processing seems well short of best-in-class, too. I had to figure out the word “navigate” to get what I wanted; questions like “how do I get to X” didn’t seem to work.

    Not "best in class", then you name a bunch of things that are not even cars? Ask Siri to transport you to Starbucks and see if she is "best in class" at that function. :p

    You do not need to press it "again to stop speaking" on second thought,. It's kind of funny if you are unable to shut up without pressing that button :)

    I wish it had some offline capability. I often don’t have great cell service leaving work and have to wait a few miles before even being able to make a phone call via voice input.
