Google Voice Search hits iOS, tackles Siri on her own turf
Google is not content to try and win mobile search by selling more Android devices, they are now taking the voice search fight right to Siri, announcing today the immediate availability of voice search in the newest version of the Google Search app for iOS. Apple pundits like John Gruber have already praised the speed of Google’s offering relative to Siri, and of course Google knows a thing or two about providing accurate search results.

One thing you won’t get is Siri’s personality, as Google seems committed to the idea of a less personal and more “to the point” voice search. Still, the responses are quite clear and pleasant sounding, and we’ve seen before on the Android version of Voice Search that the results are generally as good as or better than those provided by Apple’s personal assistant. If you want to give it a try hit up the app store link below. To all of you iOS users out there, will this make you consider ditching Siri?
