2. Robin – AI Voice Assistant – Free
Robin is a lightweight and compact digital assistant app for Android. The app is extremely fast in booting up and becomes ready to use in no time at all. The app also comes with a peculiar interface, which makes it seems low impact too. Tap on the icon and the app will pop up with a transparent background that shows you your app drawer. This can be a little distracting for those with colorful and eye-catchy icons on their drawers.
The app performs well even in light traffic. Standard features are all very well implemented, but texting is really something special. The app can recognize a lot of different accents as well. However, the features set compared to the first app on the list is a bit limited. Not that it’s a bad thing, but we would’ve loved more options.

Hey buddy, nice collection!
But I think cortana (Windows phone) is much better than any of the android voice assistants and even Siri.
Hi Mayank, definitely Cortana is a good competitor to Android voice and Siri.
How do you get her to do anything? She always says she doesn’t know that. It’s exhausting.
Which app are you referring to?
What a load of nonsense. The whole advantage of Android is no need to use siri
Hi Hilary, thanks for sharing your opinion with us. We do understand your sentiment but there are those that wants Siri on their Android phones instead of Google Assistant.
Siri for iPhone revolutionized the behavior of the people to promote them self for a virtual assistant at every time with you!
As your article shows a clear view of the Siri apps for all android and iPhone users. good to see such posts.thanking you.
Thanks mate for writing this to me.
Any thoughts on the Google now launcher ?
To me, I’m ok with google now. It integrates all data and give me details when I want it. I expect lot of update on this from google.
hey, this is a pretty good article, but you guys really need to invest in an editor. if you can’t afford an editor, one trick is to send articles to each other to proof read. if you guys can’t catch each others mistakes, then you really should invest in an editor because it’s really hard to be taken seriously when you have basic grammatical and formatting errors. not trying to give you guys a hard time, again, good article, very informative, decent writing, and engaging, but i found myself tripping over some of what you wrote. just a tip.
Thanks for the tip. Let me know where you find mistake/errors. It will help us to improve.
Once again thanks for the suggestion.
His needs more editing than yours…
You may want to check your own errors before you throw stones. Try capitalizing once in a while.
That is too funny. I was thinking the guy needs to get a life instead of critiquing others hard work and great advice. I didn’t even notice his caps. Nice response to his comment.
Exactly right there giving out great day to read opinions better part yet their getting paid for it who’s the dummy hmmmm.lol and no theresr nothing proper about my English
Indeed Deuce’s critical analysis of the columnist’s occasional improper grammar and punctuation it’s laughable!
Thank you for your article! I had a couple of issues with Assistant being a little delayed with the responses, but after reading your article, I think I’ll stick with it. This was really informingand I appreciate you taking the time to do it.
Will Assistant – Free work with old Android OS such as the Android 2.3 Gingerbread? If not which is best for the Gingerbread?
I personally haven’t used Gingerbread in almost 3 years. And to be frankly honest, I don’t have a single device running on Gingerbread. The apps were tested on Jelly Bean. Although you can try running the top apps yourself, many of them support Android 2.X 🙂
It’s actually the best review/ranking I’ve read about assistants. Great job!
Thank you so much for your kinds words
The assistant is horrible. She doesn’t understand anything I say. I tried to get to email to emails that are programed into my phone but she can’t do it. Frustrated. That is the main reason I need it. I have RA and my hands and wrists hurt a lot and fingers and that is why I am looking for an assistant. I work from home but need to be able to email clients and others in my office.
Which app are you referring to? Have you tried all of the above apps?
Which is the best assistant app for an Australian accent that will allow me to put appointments into Google Calendar?
I think that the ones listed shouldn´t have a problem with an Australian accent. Let me know which one you try out. =-)
assistant free version has no voice recognition… in fact.. voice recognition isn’t even listed in the features list… suffice to say that would be one of the most important features… you have to purchase the premium upgrade in order to get this feature… and your article doesn’t tell which other app has it or doesn’t…
Do you mean not being able to use your voice to give a command? =-)
i’m sorry… i meant voice activation…
Is there an app that lets my iPhone FaceTime my daughters android?
sadly no. Facetime is an Apple-only product. There are a lot other video chat options.
What about all of the information that the Assistant has access to on your phone? How is it all protected?
Which app are you referring to? =-)
