I did an article recently comparing Google’s Voice Search to Apple’s Siri, and the results were very one sided. Google Voice search flat out dominated Siri in the comparison, answering my questions faster and more accurately every time. Of course, this was the iOS 5 version of Siri, so we’ll have to wait and see what Apple has up its sleeve for Siri once iOS 6 becomes official.
But at least for right now, I think it’s pretty fair to say that Google Voice Search is the king of voice assistants. And that’s a good thing, even for those of you who are hardcore iPhone fanboys. How could this be a good thing, you ask? Because Google is bringing its fast and accurate Voice Search over to iOS in the (very) near future. Watch the video below to see it in action:
Google recently announced that Voice Search is coming to your iPhone and iPad soon. So those of you with an iPhone 4S can have both Siri and Voice Search while those of you with the iPhone 4 and below will finally get a taste of what it’s like to have a voice assistant on your phone. Of course, Google had to give its OS an advantage, and that advantage is the little cards that show up with Voice Search on Android compared to the browser redirect on iOS (kind of like it is on Android 4.0 and below).
