Once Google launched its newly revamped Google Voice Search on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, we were bound to see many people pitting it against Apple’s Siri to see how it fares against the competition. It is also important to note that Google’s Voice Search software isn’t interactive much like Siri’s. Meaning you won’t be able to hold simple conversations with it like the ones you see on Apple’s Siri commercials. I have always thought that part of Siri is just a gimmick and a way to market the software and entice customers to buy the iPhone. After all, the reason we would use a voice activated assistant program is to get as much information and as quickly as possible, right? That’s exactly what Google’s New Voice Search program does exceptionally well, even more so than Siri.
The video below provides various tests that were handed out to both Google Search and Siri, and each time Google Search came out on top in speed and detail. There were even some instances where Siri could not pull up the information whereas Google’s Search did it with ease. Google’s Voice Search not only provides a direct response, it also completes a web search every time a question is asked. You simply scroll down to see the results of the web search. Considering Google is the worlds most used and largest search engine, who wouldn’t want their question automatically searched every time? That’s something that Siri doesn’t offer and I feel that gives Google Search a big leg up in the battle. By no means is Siri a bad program, it’s still great at what it does. I just feel that Google Voice Search is a vastly superior product, and when paired with Google Now, Siri just doesn’t stand a chance. Jump past the break to see the two in a head to head competition.
