Apple’s Siri vs Google’s Voice Search
When Siri was first advertised, I was certainly very impressed and really wanted to update my iPhone. However, once the product was launched, several people had problems with Siri and the dream seemed to turn into a nightmare.
Google Voice Search, available in the latest operating software for Android phones, is a much better listener. It’s definitely smarter. If I ask Google Voice Search a question, like, “Who is Tim Cook?” it responds with an answer. (He’s the chief executive of Apple.) If I ask Siri the same question, the response is: “I don’t see Tim Cook in your contacts.”
Do you think voice recognition is the ‘next revolution in smartphones’ or do you think something better/more useful out there? Even after refining Siri, do you think it can ever actually be as 'amazing' as Apple make it out to be? Do you think Apple are better at innovating but Google are better at implementing?
What new feature on a smartphone would you like to see in the future (assume anything is possible)?
