What does a Google Voice Search vs Siri Head-to-Head Sound like?

Google Search for iOS recently added a Siri-like voice search to their app so folks have been testing it against Siri for speed, accuracy, and the inevitable humor factor. Gizmodo posted a video with a head-to-head comparison last week, pretty interesting stuff where the apps both hit and miss.

First, watch the video:

Not bad. I don’t know how they filmed the test whether it was side by side live (I don’t think so) or one after another. However, it seemed to me that Google beat Siri hands down in pure speed. Accuracy? Mixed bag.

When I asked Siri “I’d like a coffee” I got a list of places nearby (though the last time I did that I got “I bet you do”), Google search results for coffee:

What’s your take? Have you tried the apps head to head? Chime in, we’d love to hear your thoughts.

    Both of them have their differents, But I guess it really depend on what people like the most on their phone.

    Google Voice beats Siri hands down on information questions. Siri does have a “personality” that some users may like. Like Sean said, it all depends on what people want on their phones.

    Google’s implementation works in a lot of countries where Siri doesn’t. It also understands Indian accents much better.

      Yeah Siri doesn’t understand when my wife wants to listen to a particular opera title and speaks in Italian, German, or Spanish…

    When I ask “I like some coffee”, Siri responds, “Acknowledged Captain, I mean Edward”. OK…
