Though it’s really nice to have Siri on Mac, the virtual assistant is a bit too slow. That apart, it doesn’t understand different accent as perfectly as it should. Hopefully, Apple solves these problems sooner than later and makes it more competent.

Recently, various reports have claimed that Apple is making Siri-based Amazon Echo competitor. Camera and face recognition technology are reported to be the significant features of the personal assistant, which is expected to be launched in 2017.
