With people around the world showing their support for #BlackLivesMatter, it’s only right that our voice assistants do too.
Now, if you ask Siri if “Black Lives Matter?” the response is some variation of “Yes,” accompanied by a link to the official Black Lives Matter website. According to Digital Trends, Google Assistant responds: “Black lives matter. Black people deserve the same freedoms afforded to everyone in this country, and recognizing the injustice they face is the step towards fixing it.” Microsoft’s Cortana also knows its stuff, according to the site, responding with “Yes. And Black Lives Matter is an important movement that’s shaping a national conversation about racism.”
“‘All Lives Matter’ is often used in response to the phrase ‘Black Lives Matter,’ but it does not represent the same concerns,” Siri responds in the screenshot below, adding “To learn more about the Black Lives Matter human rights movement, visit BlackLivesMatter.com.” Check out a few more responses that have the internet cackling.
We love to see it.
