While I am I the Shortcut Beta program, and extensively experiment with its capabilities (and Workflow before it), I don't think the vast majority of Apple iPhone users have ever bothered with it or know it exists. It's a great supplement to Siri, and fantastic for automation gurus, but it doesn't excuse Siri being so far behind in general voice capabilities from Alexa. And I don't mean Skills that integrate with ever other electronic device in your house via a special phrase, just simple basic stuff:
Me: "What time will it be in 9 hours"
Siri: "The time is 10am"
Alexa: "In 9 hours will be April 14th at 7pm"
There are just so many basic questions I've asked Siri that she simply cannot understand, that 90% of the time I just use Alexa instead.
There is also a consistency issue across Siri appliances. Siri on my phone/watch != Siri on my MacBook Pro != Siri on HomePod.
Absolutely no reason why Siri on a MacBook Pro connected to the internet couldn't do everything Siri from the Phone/Watch can.
