Video: Another Landslide Victory for Google Voice Search Over Siri

Google’s Voice Search is batting 1.000 against Apple’s Siri in a new video of the two going head to head. While I still think it’s unreasonable to compare the two (one is just simply more advanced), it is fun to watch others have fun with Google’s new Voice Search and get a laugh at Siri’s expense.

    Search App Judgement on Youtube and you’ll find more videos of her and another cute chick Jackie Talbott, I watch the channels videos every time they put out new ones. It’s an awesome tech resource…..oh and ANDROID FTW, I kinda knew Google was gonna come up with something to top Siri hahaha. I think Siri got 1 question fast out of them all….correct me if I’m wrong though hahaha….maybe 0, :-).

  • John

    BOOM.

    • Jason Brown

      was i the only one who noticed the delayed “boom” where she forgot to say “boom” bc she was waiting for siri to provide an answer? lol. it’s around the 5 minute mark in case anyone wanted to watch it again.

  • john

    Siri lost because she’s holding it wrong.

    This video is frickin’ hilarious! I Lol’ed. Siri… such a terrible creation. Apple you suuuuuck! And to think… Siri is Apple’s biggest selling point for the new iPhones. How sad. Google Now is where it’s at man! I’m proud to have a rooted VZW Galaxy Nexus running the most current Android Jelly Bean 4.1.1. Android for life. :)

  • frankandsimple

    Do android fans realize that google now and siri are meant to do completely different things? Jesus Christ the sheer ignorance is mind boggling.

    • http://www.facebook.com/sperkins224 Stephen Perkins

      I’m pretty sure Siri wanted to be a virtual assistant in her prime. Siri is getting fired due to the lack of work ethic and ability to help the user. Google Now is hired because it actually has a solid work ethic and is highly accurate. Google now is a virtual assistant: Guiding the user with voice commands… just much more advanced than poor Siri. So how can a virtual assistant be different than a virtual assistant? I don’t know?

        The world’s most valuable company, primarily because of the iPhone, is on track to be the most profitable company in the history of the world. What a “steep fall”.

        Like frankandsimple said…SHEER IGNORANCE

      • Holy Grail

        If you think apple fans are bad……..you should get a load of yourself. You make android fans look bad.

    • PigHeaded

      Yeah, google now was meant to be productive. Siri was meant to waste your time. I completely agree with you.

  • sporttster

    Anyone know if this is available for the Razr??

    • Droidzilla

      Yes, I know. No, it isn’t.

  • http://twitter.com/huffimus_prime Jason Huff

    As someone who constantly needs pictures of stallions, I cannot recommend Jelly Bean at all. Not once did it return a picture of a stallion. I don’t think Google even knows what a stallion is.

  • thatbro

    Not to be that guy, but in a test with my GalNex running JB and an iPhone on iOS6, Google Now/Voice search gets like a 8, Siri is up towards a 9. No voice recognition SW is perfect, and even a little bit of background noise messes things up. TL;DR, ios6 Siri is closer to what you’d want from a virtual assistant. Google Now isn’t bad, but still needs work imho.

    • kgballa

      not to be that guy but please post your results becuase every posting from basically every respected tech site has proven that goovle voice is superior in every way. Apple fan boys have always been all talk and no substance. provide proof to your statement or keep it to yourself

      • DroidDoesnt_2

        Every tech site is posting the results of Google Now vs the current beta version of Siri, not the updated Siri in iOS 6. Just like every brand new pretend iPhone released is compared to the nearly year-old iPhone 4s. Fandroids have always been all talk and no substance….

        • Adam Marr

          your right, except show pictures of scallions, or web search for text/questions it actually gets the vocal translation for correct. Have you even watched all these videos, or is denial too strong?

        • PuzzleShot

          that’s not a 4g android phone, that’s a nexus 7 (which is only wifi)

  • Trevor

    Now Apple’s just gonna get pissed off and sue Google for voice search stuff. Mark my words.

    • Steven

      Google had voice search way before Siri was around.

      • Droidzilla

        Since when has prior art mattered to the USPTO when it comes to granting Apple patents?

        • MicroNix

          Sad, but true.

    • Jeff Metzger

      That would be funny considering Apple didn’t even “invent” siri, they just bought it. It’s nice that Google actually invents then innovates, where as Apple just innovates than litigates.

      • iKing_1

        Exactly what did Google invent?

        • http://twitter.com/shaneplawson Shane Lawson

          voice search bud they had it first then came siri then they went back to voice search and made it better.

          • iKing_1

            I didn’t ask who had it first…..I asked what did Google INVENT? Are you saying that Google INVENTED voice search? If so, proof please?

          • idiot

            Calm down dude, nobody cares about your comment.

    • http://geniousatplay.blogspot.com/ Bikram Agarwal

      First thing that comes to my mind when read headlines of stories like this. Don’t let “iHe who must not be named” know.

  • https://plus.google.com/110773438514346746273/ tjhrulz

    So it looks like Google Now has started to get more awesome and checks your email now. The other day I ordered Domino’s and went to pull up Google Now to get directions to go pick it up and it had already went through the email I had received a minute before and when I went into Google Now it already populated itself with a card to directions to that specific domino’s. I was impressed to say the least.

    • Droidzilla

      This, I think, is the real killer feature of Google Now. It’s just icing on the cake that it can out voice-search Siri.

      • MicroNix

        Google Now is the iPhone killer feature. Hopefully Google patented the crap out of it and we’ll see this and the voice search bury the competition for a while.

        “Wait, you have to ask Siri for directions? Google Now already knows where I want to go and has it ready!”

        “But just look at these awesome stallion pictures”

        :)

  • Liderc

    haha, Apple has to be dying right now. These comparison videos are just getting better.

  • Scott

    I tried a couple of JB ROMs and went back to ICS. I couldn’t deal with the random freezing. Maybe again in a few weeks. Google now recognized my voice better, but it never talked back to me like it does in some of the Youtube videos. Only when I asked what someones height was and what the weather was, did it verbally speak back. I also asked it to set a reminder which it did and reminder went off. However, that reminder never visually appeared on my calendar. I this will be blaspheming to some people, but my wife’s SIRI woks better thus far.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=15106193 Ryan Cota

      Most of the ROM out were from a hack version to work, now with ASOP and 4.1.1 released, wait till those ROMS incorporate them in and you shouldn’t have issues.

      • iamcc

        I have Google Now on my Nexus thanks to JellyBelly 3.5 and can say it works flawlessly for me.

        • http://www.facebook.com/sperkins224 Stephen Perkins

          Woot! A Jelly Belly user! I’m running 3.6 right now on my VZW GNex, which is the most current. +1 to you!

      • Scott

        That’s why I’m going to wait a few weeks.

    • The Hamburglar

      Do you speak with marbles in your mouth?

  • Ryan Powell

    With Google Now getting smarter the more you use it will it sync that information to our Google Accounts? I’m curious since I have a Gnex and a Nexus 7 on order if it only remembers local to the device.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=15106193 Ryan Cota

      Good question, I am curious about this myself

    • ArrowCool

      I agree, this is a very good question. My N7 is due to be delivered tomorrow, I’ll bring it with me to work on Wednesday and see if any of my cards pop up.

    • Bill Anderson

      I’ve had Google’s Latitude history tracking going on for a couple years. When I upgraded my GNex to JB, Google Now immediately showed the traffic for my commute. I would say they are going to cloud-base all this info…

      • https://plus.google.com/110773438514346746273/ tjhrulz

        It also looks at emails, I ordered Domino’s and they send a confirmation email when you order it online. I pulled up Google Now and the first card was directions to that specific Domino’s

    • http://twitter.com/savagejeep SavageJeep

      Try this… search for a specific place, restaurant on your laptop or desktop in Chrome. Get in your car and bring up Google Now on your tablet or phone. One of the cards will be driving directions to that place. What is really weird/cool is when the wife searches for something at home and then I see it on my phone at work.

    • https://plus.google.com/110773438514346746273/ tjhrulz

      It remembers your searches made on other devices so yes it does work across devices.

    • JMonkeYJ

      i’m pretty sure it’s synced to your account, because my google now returns to just how i left it even after i wipe and install a new ROM (without restoring any settings related to google now). it works just like would want it to!

      • Ryan Powell

        I figured it must but never really read anything about it working across devices. I really can’t wait to bring Google Now into my daily life.

        • JMonkeYJ

          it’s a lot better than i expected. for instance i can follow my teams with no effort, now.

  • Skunk13

    Samsung please take note… and ditch SVoice. It sucks and is slow. It can’t even recognize half of what I say. Google’s was so much better even in Gingerbread.

    • http://profiles.google.com/adamtruelove Adam Truelove

      They won’t ditch it. And worst of all, when they upgrade the SGSIII (and any other new Samsung phone) to JB, they’ll remove Google Now and replace it with SVoice.

      • Mack

        This is exactly I can’t justify buying something from Samsung unless it’s a Nexus device.

        • http://profiles.google.com/adamtruelove Adam Truelove

          Ditto, I’ll take it one step further. I will buy nothing BUT Nexus from now on.

          • satsmine2k4

            Well i am stuck with a nexus which is really not a nexus( verizon g nex) i hope to JB on this non nexus by EOY 2012 at least……

          • Guest

            Why don’t you just flash JB on it. It is a nexus after all…

          • bassman418

            I’ve had it on my Verizon Gnex for like Two weeks already….. just flash Vicious 4.1.1 V1 works flawlessly.

          • tomn1ce

            End of the year? I’m giving VZW until the end of July to get some JB on my G-Nexus and if not, I’ll be rooting it. I hope that AOKP or CM10 will be out by then and 100% functional. I’m not into rooting but I’ll be doing it for some good buttery JB. I like what AOKP did with ICS and I can’t wait to see what they do with JB.

          • cartisdm

            Why is a verizon nexus not as good as any other nexus? I have one and I’ve been running all the beautiful custom ROMs available since day 1. Verizon doesn’t restrict anything on the GNex like they do with the S3

          • bombhills

            Me too! Nexus toothpaste is the best! Taste so like. Jelly beans.

      • skunk13

        I know, and this is why I am wondering if I should keep my S3. I love everything about it, except SVoice and Touchwiz…. I have been diehard Moto til now.

        • MicroNix

          I’m on my second Moto Android device and never again unless its a Nexus. In fact, never any phone, unless it is a Nexus. I’ve learned my lesson.

  • WAldenIV

    Use it while you can, before Apples sues Google, even though Google had voice commands when Siri was nothing more than a concept by a tech start-up that was destined to be bought out by Apple and even though Siri is nothing more than polish on Wolfram Alpha.

    “If you can’t beat ‘em, sue ‘em!” – Apple

    • rockstar323

      Even if they do try to claim that they invented voice search Google can claim they invented voice search that actually works.

      • http://profiles.google.com/adamtruelove Adam Truelove

        They can only sue if they patented SIri (have they?) and only if Google’s implementation of voice search fits the description of that patent, which it wouldn’t/doesn’t. Apple can’t patent voice commands in general (though they may try).

  • Champion1229

    And yet the iSheep will still defend Siri saying she’s better……….

  • androiddict

    Great video. If you ever need a picture of a stallion, Siri will find it!

      I don’t understand that one at all. It’s amazing that really smart people at Apple can design something so retarded. If this is Steve Jobs thermo nuclear, Android’s got nothing to worry about.

    The first question I asked….. “What is the answer to life, the universe and everything?” Needless to say, google now gave me the correct answer of 42, while Siri started spouting off about pictures of stallions.

          • S_T_R

            Not sure why you would, because no matter whether or not you think Google is a “person”, it doesn’t physically exist. It’s a legal construct which has (generally) unlimited rights to property and (since Citizen’s United) free speech. No matter how many assets are accrued under the Google name, it doesn’t physically exist. You can touch a Googe data center, just as you can touch your phone. That doesn’t make the data center “Google” any more than the phone is actually you. Both are objects owned by a person, only one of those two people physically exist.

          maybe i missed something, but did google ever officially anounce a release of this product? up until a couple days ago when they officially stated that they were shipping, i believe the only thing they said was “shipping in 2-5 weeks” or something like that. like i said, maybe i missed it but i dont remember a “shipping on July 12th” type comment from anyone inside google.
