With Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Google has made Siri think about going back to school. In a gargantuan 1600-question test, Gizmodo tested new Google Voice Search up against Apple’s Siri. The results are pretty shocking. In the test Google Search answered 86% of questions correctly or relevantly. Siri, on the other hand, answered only a mere 68% accurately.
Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder and loved-by-all tech guy, has even said Siri has its issues. The Woz said, “It’s now full of market-driven answers that are not correct.”
Google’s new voice search seems to be much more conversational and actually sounds much more natural when responding to your question. That being said, it also does it far more accurately than Siri does. Will this be enough to swoon even the most die-hard of Apple fans? Maybe, maybe not. But it’s good to know that Google, which has always been plagued with releasing beta products is now releasing products at their full potential. Jelly Bean is a clear indicator of that and Google Now with voice search that should actually be able to help you with day to day questions and tasks.
