Watch Google Voice Search in Android Jelly Bean chew through oddball questions with flying colors
posted by Daniel P. / Jul 03, 2012, 5:57 AM
Of note is the very rapid response time Google Voice Search renders now, even on vague questions like "Where's that museum with Egyptian stuff in San Jose?" Google's unsurpassed search query prowess is undoubtedly showing here, but there are many more fun episodes in the nearly 10-minute long video below, which will make you want Jelly Bean on your handset ASAP. How do you think the handset reacts when it's told to "do a barrel roll"? Peep into the video below to find out.

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.

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.

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..
