I expect an iLawsuit from Apple has already been queued up to be filed the moment the production version of Google Voice is released.

What LAG? This kills Siri in every way in terms of smarts & speed. I have had Jelly Bean since a day after Google I/O & I have had time to use it with my friends Apple iPhone 4S's Siri. The Apple iPhone is slow & Siri sounds like a robot unlike the Google's sexy voice.

Sounds like you are a typical brainwashed Apple lost soul.

Apple's name should have been lemon - after the bitter taste you have when Tim Cook is done using you. Literally. :D

There's two schools of thought of apple choosing the apple name and logo,first one it represents the gaining of knowledge by taking a bite out of the proverbial apple in the 'garden of Eden'. Second school of thought is that its a domineering mocking form of this proverbial apple bite representing and laughing at mans fall from grace over eating it. Considering apples corrupted,anticompetitiveness and money gouging nature of late there could be much
evidence for the later!!!

But yes Android does eat apple lol!

Not to stay off topic it looks like the voice actions Google has had place for years now is really hitting top gear

Actually, the name came the same way so many other "inspirations" came to Steve Jobs - he copied it from the Beatles' Apple record label. He was a big Beatles fan (as am I).

And, he agreed after being sued by the label, to not get the company into music sales, which of course he later did anyway with iTunes. Zero honor or integrity.

A polished Voice search product?!

Its seems the argument by some misinformed fans that one company only releases polished products while the other releases beta products is now beyond a doubt void.

Completely agree, Nocturne.
This was phenomenal.

The first true voice assistant.

Now that EVIL rotten company will scream BAN!BAN!BAN!
I HATE them

Google now is straightforward and very fast & more accurate, Siri has a gimmicky features like telling jokes.

There is a significant difference that some people seem not to grasp.

Siri was designed and advertised as something you would have a conversation with.

Google Now is taking things the phone ACTUALLY ALREADY DID and condensing it into a pretty little app (or whatever) called Google Now.

Siri = useful but how it's advertised is gimmicky
Google Now = useful + more accurate than Siri = better than Siri

YES! I love Google now, it literally gets smarter every time you use it. Also I don't want to talk or have conversations with my phone. I rather talk to a live HUMAN than Siri.

As for the functionality of Google's new Voice Search it's hands down faster & more accurate. That is the bottom line!

Surely you know that Google released voice actions years before Siri was brought by Apple. JB is just improving on voice actions even more by pulling up information when you need it. For example if you put in where you go to work and use turn by turn for the first week or so Google now will remember you have been here and if you are going in the direction will automatically pull up the navigation before you say it!

Oh. So you think Apple came out with Siri, not the company that actually created Siri? Cool story, bro.

There's a difference between creating a releasing software onto a mobile OS and then buying a company so you can use the patents and sue other companies for using similar ideas.

I hope Google will add features like ability to turn on & off wi-fi, bluetooth, gps, etc. in offline mode.. S-Voice has these features & probably soon on Siri but it requires data connection & relatively slow compared to Google Now & Siri..

Siri has been in beta for almost a year and it can't even beat this beta product of one week? Pretty obvious who's been working and who hasn't.
