When it comes to voice assistant features, Apple has Siri, and Google has Google Now. The latter is admittedly a more feature-rich tool as anyone who’s ever used an Android device can attest to, but apparently this is something that Apple will not take lying down. According to a report from 9to5Mac, things will be changing drastically with iOS 9.
According to them, Apple will be introducing a new feature called “Proactive”. This is a feature that has been in the works since 2013 ever since Apple acquired a personal assistant app called Cue. Basically what Proactive aims to do is become the Google Now for iOS by relevantly broadening Spotlight and Siri’s search results. Read full post →Apple’s “Proactive” Feature Will Take On Google Now
