So, with the HomePod being released in about a week, I wanted to have a discussion about voice assistants in general, ie do you use one, do you have a voice in a tube, etc.

I do not (currently) have any voices in a tube, but I do use Siri a lot on my phone. From checking the weather, to turning on my alarms, to setting timers, being able to evoke it with a simple phrase makes it so useful. Right now, I don't really have a need for a more dedicated device (a la Echo or Home), but I would love to tinker with them.

Sadly, I have no experience with using voice assistants. Just not used to talking to AI, so I'm not using my phone/tablet that way. They sound pretty convenient for multitasking, though.

What're voices in a tube? @_@ fox is technologically inept
You do seem to know what is needed. Yes, what a Trainer needs is a virtuous heart. Pokémon touch the good hearts of Trainers and learn good from wrong. They touch the good hearts of Trainers and grow strong... Go onwards! The Champion is waiting!
