Instagram rolled out a location Stories feature, just like Snapchat’s location Stories feature
Location and hashtag Stories give Instagram something besides yet another popular Snapchat feature: These Stories will also be another place to show users ads. Barnes says Instagram won’t sell ads against these group Stories at launch, but Snapchat does, and at one point was making some good money doing so. It’s very likely that Instagram will do the same at some point down the line.

Despite being the youngest of the three, Google Assistant turned out to be better at understanding different accents. If you think about it, that’s not exactly surprising. Google has a treasure trove of technologies, data, and people working on natural language processing for years, be it text or, in this case, voice. Apple, on the other hand, has the advantage of being in this type of market far longer. This leaves Amazon at a disadvantage, with neither years of experiences nor a pool of resources to draw from.
