Watch another funny Google Voice Search vs Siri skit
posted by Daniel P. / Jul 17, 2012, 7:40 AM
Both services present themselves with various degrees of success, yet Android Jelly Bean's Voice Search evidently has the upper hand, as it is tied up directly with Google's world class search results, and shows them in a snap.
Siri failed to recognize the questions a few times, making the girl in the video ask herself whether she has a speech impediment that she has not been aware of until now, and kept putting off her question about scallions until it was no longer needed. A pretty funny skit to watch, and we bet there will be more of those when iOS 6 and Jelly Bean hit more and more handsets. The fun starts at 3:15 into the vid.

There are only 2 reasons why I'd watch her videos and they're wasted on advertising.

Voice search alone gives Siri a run for it's money, what about Google Now? Overkill.

This video was overkill. Siri doesn't automatically display pictures/content from google. No matter how many times you ask it to it won't so there's no point in asking 4-5 different times. But in terms of comedy, the video was pretty funny not gonna lie.

But isn't that part of what makes Google Now better? Less steps when it needs to go further. Siri suggests to search the web and I assume you have to tell it? Dont really know... It did show results of the game, like Siri. For other stuff it gave search results. Damn near dead on accurate results too. IMO....looking at the game results...Apple spent more time on how Siri looks than on how Siri functions. How it looks n feels has always been more of a priority for Apple with the iPhone. Siri did show the inning by inning results, while Google Now just showed the final score. it can be argued both sides about which is better. In Google Now's defense....just the final score made for a faster result.

Maybe now people will understand why everyone has been calling Siri a gimmick... My girlfriend's dad challenged her to find a sushi place nearby; Girlfriend: "Where can I get sushi in xxx, Rhode Island." Google Now: *Lists places to get sushi in xxx, Rhode Island." Girlfriend's dad: "Where can I get sushi in xxx, Rhode Island." Siri: "Yes." Girlfriend's dad: "Dammit."

I think voice search is more fast and accurate because is able to transcript every word individually on real time, by the time you stop asking the query the app does not need to send your text to a server wait for the server to respond and start searching, also this proves what I've been saying Google has been conditioning everything for a while in order to make it more accurate. its experience in trying to understand what the user is looking for is far superior than apple currently has to offer, Google is not only a search engine but a source of knowledge.
