iOS 6 Siri compared to Jelly Bean Google Search: video

As you probably know, when it comes to new things in the mobile space sooner or later it gets compared to Apple’s offering, and you probably know that with iOS 6, Apple’s voice assistant Siri gets improved, and we’ve already seen Siri compared with S Voice on the Samsung Galaxy S3. However there is now another voice assistant to challenge Siri, that of Google Search in the new Android Jelly Bean OS.

Thus what we have for your viewing consideration below is a short comparison video whereby John Rettinger of Technobuffalo compares iOS 6 Beat 2 Siri against Google Search found in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to see which, if any has the edge over the other.

John uses an iPhone 4S running iOS 6 alongside a Galaxy Nexus running a pre-release version of Android Jelly Bean, and asks several questions of both devices such as what’s the weather, set a timer for ten minutes, who won the angle’s game yesterday, and so on.

John also says that the voice with Google’s upgraded search sounds incredibly more human that that with Siri, and that it appears that the Android Jelly Bean Google Search out beat iOS 6 Siri hands down, and it is incredibly impressive what Google has done.

Anyway that’s enough from me, I’ll simply let you head on down to mash that play button to check out Siri versus Google Search so you can see the difference when it comes to speak and clarity for yourself…enjoy.

      Looks are subjective, though. I personally prefer the minimalistic style of Google Now. And, Google Now performs better, which is much more important. Often in factual questions Siri doesn’t even read the answer out, it just shows a card with small text, which kind of defeats the purpose.

    Notice how he glossed right over the fact that Siri sets all the reminder info for you? How much longer would that have been setting every field manually on jelly bean? The baseball score showed the entire box score… what would you rather have as a fan? i think google simply point to the google web page. If you want to ask google the just touch in the browser bar and search there using voice in safari. The weather was more detailed as well. Your can get can get so much more detail with Siri sports inquiry’s than this terd points out. Really man? Google still has as long way to go to finish copying apple.
