9. Robin AI Assistant

Robin AI Assistant is another decent alternative to Google Assistant especially when you are going for a long drive and stuck in your driver’s seat in traffic. Straight your eyes to the road and Robin will play the song for you. Wanna call your friend Rumo? She can do that too. Although being a good alternative, some users have a complaint slow response time and a little bit of bugginess as compared to Google Assistant. You can try it if you want but I would still choose my current personal over Robin.
