    I think it is ridiculous to say "mail Merry I miss you"on a bus.

    "Type and search" is more useful.

    I use it in my car over the bluetooth speakers to set alarms and sometimes place calls. It works okay and it will only get better.

    It is helpful in this case. And more?

    I don't use any voice assistant without voice activation from sleep. BlackBerry needs some form of voice activation like the Moto X for it to be useful to me.

    I use it every day to make phone calls in my car and almost every day to do voice text and voice BBM's. I think it works really great and only going to get better

    I use it constantly. I use it as my app launcher, as a better google and I set all reminders and alarms with it.

    Most of the time I type the commands. Truly great feature!

    I very seldom use it. I'm capable of typing. Lol the only people I ever see using a voice assistant are old like my pa or people who can't spell . I sometimes use talk to text for texts in the car though. I rarely need that.

    Do you type to the assistant then?

    I use it for specific tasks.
    I never really know where to put my reminders : should it be in the calendar ? in the task/note app ? I'm confused so I just fire up the assistant and i just dictate the reminder. Works great.
    I also use the assistant when I am driving to dictate a mail or a SMS. But it's quite rare.
    other than that I'm a die hard fan of Alfred app on OS X and I just type away. i've plugged in IMDB, Wikipedia and most importantly Search for Places. Though it seems the assistant is not very reactive

    What apps to the universal search have you guys plugged in ?

    I'm using it more and more. I've recently started using it to set reminders. For example, say "Remind me to buy dinner at 5 pm". It's awesome.

    I've been using it, mainly for Reminders. It's so much easier to say "Remind me to ..... in 45 minutes" then to type it out or open the calendar/remember app and enter it in.

    Also, don't forget you can just start typing too so there is no need to talk to it. It also incorporates the Universal search into it, so if you've been using that you'll be using the Assistant.
