What is your favorite virtual assistant?

Looking for an assistant to do menial tasks like general research for startups, scheduling appointments, booking travel, etc who can be trusted with some personal information. Seems like Upwork may be best but wanted to see if there are any other options.

    Easy to use and flexible. I've used Calendly a ton for scheduling interviews. It syncs with my Google calendar, but I can also limit the times available via Calendly further which is a great feature.

      If I have several google calendars (work, personal, company), I have to use create a new Calendly account per calendar, create a team feature and then merge. I think this use case isn't an edge case at all.

      I also want to be able to scroll /highlight entire sections that are open to public to setup meetings, not show all non-booked spots as open. So the visual experience of picking open slots can be better.

    Upwork is great for finding a virtual assistant. I've used it to find people to do data entry at a very affordable price.

    TaskRabbit

    Now on-demand service for cleaning, handiwork, & errands

    TaskRabbit are a great option too! I find people on their platform to be generally more qualified than on Upwork and the like.

    Clara

    Human-in-the-loop assistant that schedules meetings.

    Ana SantosStarting from scratch · Edited
    Really works, it's a shame that it's a bit expensive so it's only worth it for people who spend fair amount of their day scheduling meetings.

    Voice search and assistant app. A better Siri.

    Besides Alexa, Cortona, Google, I think Hound is pretty cool made by soundhound so has great music discovering abilities.
