When asked the question about whether using a virtual assistant could make your life easier,  you may say no, because you don't understand what a Virtual Assistant is.  According to Lifewire:

A virtual assistant is an application that can understand voice commands and complete tasks for a user. Virtual assistants are available on most smartphones and tablets, traditional computers, and, now, even standalone devices like the Amazon Echo and Google Home.

Examples of the most popular Virtual Assistants are:

Virtual Assistants are most often used for checking the weather, playing music including our favorite radio station, and setting alarms.  But Virtual Assistants can do much more...

Virtual assistants can do everything from answer questions, tell jokes, play music, and control items in your home such as lights, thermostat, door locks and smart home devices. They can respond to all sorts of voice commands, send text messages, make phone calls, set up reminders; anything you do on your phone, you can probably ask your virtual assistant to do for you.

Most of the objections to using Virtual Assistants lie in the privacy aspect...can they spy on you?  Once you get past this you realize that these items can serve as a convenience and actually make your life easier.
