Do you use the digital assistant on your smartphone? What do you use it for?

I use mine a lot. Use it to set the alarm, set reminders. Check the weather, even use it to search for things on Google.

Mostly just to navigate home or to work since I found Google Maps has been getting quite good at finding the quickest routes to dodge traffic.

Only other thing I use it for is launching spotify while driving.

Not since I got an iPhone. After using Google Assistant on a Nexus 5X, Siri is pointless and incapable. A Google Voice Assistant in 2016 was much more functional than Siri today.

Use it while on the motorbike to change songs, or to call somebody.

Sometimes it works perfectly and other times not.

I'm guessing you haven't tried Siri's new workflow app?
