Voice assistants are still dumb computers programmed to provide you answers to questions and control your Spotify playlist. But just once, I'd love my Google Home to help me out with a joke or two when my brother comes over. After all, what's the use of a voice assistant if it can't help you roast your friends? With the help of IFTTT (If This Then That), make your voice assistant say whatever you want (within reason) and pull a few pranks on unsuspecting friends and family. Or, if you're me, get it to deliver some choice insults to the people you love most.


Cisco is jumping in on the AI-powered voice assistant game with the introduction of Spark Assistant - a kind of Siri for meetings. You can things like “Hey, Spark. I want to start the meeting” and the software will do all the work to get you connected. While the announcement was made today, Spark Assistant will be deployed in phases with new functions added over time.
