Hey Siri

This is just an observation, not a statement of direction. But I find myself speaking more with Siri than with Alexa. And it's because of HomePod and Watch. I did not use it much on iPhone, but I do it all the time on the Watch, and often via HomePod. Once you get used to saying "Hey Siri", you don't have much reason to say "Alexa". If only Siri wasn't so chatty. I don't always need a long answer.

I'm more surprise that you still use Alexa for certain tasks, which are these? As a heavy Apple Watch user as you are and then with the added HomePod, why shouldn't you use a lot Siri - for these two you don't have another choice, do you?

Alexa, wie ist der Verkehr? Alexa, wann kommt die Müllabfuhr?

I use Siri a lot in the car with CarPlay since a while and that works really great.
