iPhone 4S’s Siri vs Voice Search On Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

siri vs jelly bean

Google recently introduced Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at it’s I/O keynote in San Francisco. One of the best features of Jelly Bean is Google’s new Voice search to compete with Apple’s Siri.

siri vs jelly bean

A Google fan, Jean-Louis Nguyen got all of the goodies that Google gave to developers and tested Google’s Voice and posed 47 actions (questions,etc) to the software.
Check out this video:

Siri vs Google Voice Search!

You will notice that performance of Google’s voice search coupled with Knowledge Graph is on par with Siri and sometimes even exceeds. And you can also do stuff like “Do a barrel roll” with Google’s voice search for more fun. But I am sure that Apple is going to improve Siri with their new iPhone update later this year.

So, what do you think? Do you think this can compete with Siri?
Let us know your thoughts in comments.
