Siri Alternatives That Bring Voice Assistants To Android

Saturday, December 10th, 2011

Voice assistant apps have been around for quite some time on Android. While they do a fairly good job, the recently launched iPhone voice assistant, Siri, gives them a run for their money.

If you have not heard of Siri, it is the amazing voice assistant that comes with the new iPhone 4S. However, Android has had similar features and applications for a really long time before Siri.

All these applications on Android transmit data back to Google to process the speech into text. This makes them slower and less accurate than Siri. This gives Siri a considerable edge over Android’s voice assistant software.

The Android alternatives we will tell you about today may not be quite as good as Siri, but they are worth checking out.
