Siri Vs Google Voice Assistant

Posted by Sam Churchill on

Last week at Google I/O, Google’s Voice assistant was rolled out with Jelly Bean (Android 4.1). It gives you the ability to search by voice. The spoken search results mimic Siri’s functionality. Here’s one comparison between Siri vs. Google’s “Voice Assistant”:

But Siri isn’t really “voice search,” according to SearchEngineLand. Siri is a version of “artificial intelligence” with a voice front end, provided by Nuance. Google has used its index, its speed and its voice assets to bring a Siri-like experience to Jelly Bean Android devices. For most people it will close the gap between Android and Siri-powered iOS devices.

Siri is an integral part of iOS 6, and available on the iPhone 4S and the iPad (3rd generation).

Google’s Voice assistant is available on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) on the latest Nexus phones and tablets. It’s similar to the S Voice feature used in phones like the Samsung S3.

Google Now combines two existing Google technologies: Google Voice Actions and Google Knowledge Graph.
