Google voice search (Jelly Bean) beats Siri by miles - video

From the day iPhone 4S was launched, Siri, the voice assistant, was the big deal. Siri was the 'cool' factor. Now we hear that Google voice search, coming with Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) on a Galaxy Nexus. TechnoBuffalo has put both to test side by side and the result is pretty impressive. Google voice search is the obvious winner because

1. It is faster.
2. Its voice is less robotic, more human.
3. It provides very relevant but short answers -plus bigger size pictures when appropriate.

So if voice assistant is the feature you are looking for, then you might even change your choice by going for Galaxy Nexus. Below you can also see the comment provided by TechnoBuffalo. 

Siri is how Apple persuades consumers to buy the iPhone 4S, and in iOS 6, the voice assistant promises to get a whole lot better. But before the new and improved Siri arrives, Google is unleashing an upgrade to its search that, well, blows Apple's tech right out of the water. Built from the ground up in the new Android Jelly Bean update, the new search engine accepts and answers questions with aplomb. When we first booted it up and gave it a go, it seriously blew us away with how quick it returned results, and the technology's voice is much more fluid than Siri's robotic pipes. We pitted the two against each other to see just how great Google's enhanced search is, and why Apple's new Siri may already be behind before she even arrives.
