    Cortana is useless.

    I use all of the assistants and I agree with Francis that Cortana is the worst. Luckily it can be disabled. Although you could argue that it's already pretty disabled because it's so badly implemented! LOL!

    Alexa is really good and I love the way it integrates so well with smart home gadgets, IFTTT, and accessing music.

    Cortana feels like it's at least 5 years out of date. Give up on it Microsoft, or licence Alexa or Google's assistant.

    Cortana connect with SmartThings not working

    After hearing about the new IFTTT functionality that Cortana had acquired lat week, I decided to try adding Samsung Smarthome via the Cortana Connected home interface. To my surprise, it seems to work now!

    I'm not sure how much she can do, as she says I don't have any devices she can control, but this seems like progress.
