New Report Says Google Accelerating Development Of Siri Competitor, Project Majel

While we want to see a lot out of Google I/O, including new Nexus devices, Jelly Bean and a whole bunch of new features, there is little that has me more excited than the prospect of Project Majel, otherwise known as Assistant and Google’s “Siri competitor.” A new Wall Street Journal report discussing Apple and Google’s deeper push into Mobile Software highlights Google’s “Accelerated plans to launch its own Siri competitor that would work on Android-powered devices, people familiar with the matter have said.”

The report further highlights Google’s wish to make Project Majel to be so much more than Siri, more of a personality than just someone delivering weather and reminding you of your next appointment.

As Google I/O approaches, there is bound to be an expectation for Google to at least discuss their upcoming Voice project, even if they just show a teaser or two. For now, we’ll just have to hope that Google shows off something next week, and if not, we’ll just continue to raise expectations for when they do.
