Apple’s Siri and Google Now are now both neck and neck on in a series of challenges from analyst Gene Munster, reports C/Net.

Google Now, like Siri, uses a natural language user interface to answer questions, make recommendations, and perform actions by delegating requests to a set of web services. It was unveiled as part of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at the Google I/O on June 27, 2012.

An iOS version of Google Now is now available on Apple’s IOS-7.

“We believe that our test suggests that Google Now and Siri are comparable in terms of understanding the spoken queries and returning the correct result,” Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said.
