New AI Test Finds That Siri On HomePod Only Answered 52.3 Of Queries Correctly, Mostly In "Local" And "Commerce" Categories

According to a new AI test by Loup Ventures, even through Apple's HomePod is the "best sounding" smartspeaker in the market right now, however, for its underlying AI assistant - Siri understood 99.4 percent of queries asked of it, but it only answered 52.3 percent of them correctly, failed to Amazon's Alexa, Microsoft's Cortana, and Google Assistant.

Loup Ventures' Gene Munster said HomePod is "at the bottom of the totem pole" in the AI assistant performance category. Google Home is top the chart as it answered 81 percent correctly, while Amazon's Alexa rates is 64 percent, Microsoft's Cortana rated 57 percent, petty close to Siri's score.


In the chart, it appears that Siri's good for "local" and "commerce" queries, like when you asking about nearby coffee shops or assisting in buying new shoes. In this area, Siri beats Alexa and Cortana but still falls behind Google Assistant on Google Home by few points.

Despite Siri good for local and commerce informations, the smart assistant still failed in part because a number of functions, including email, calling, calendars, and navigations, which are simply inaccessible on a HomePod. Likewise, it would bring up a list of Google search results on an iPhone, it outright fails to provide anything on a HomePod.

Munster says given that Apple's main focus to the HomePod is music and sound quality, so his Siri overall performance rose above expectations. He believes that Apple may improve the HomePod's options over time, making it more useful and to integrated well with other Apple devices.
