Apple Siri has been out for about 10 months. It still has not seen broad usage partly due to having an awful text-to-speech voice, poor voice recognition and general slowness.
Google Voice in Jelly Bean provides a similar functionality to Siri.
Early comparisons of Google Voice vs Siri show that Google Voice is better.
- Google Voice has a much better sounding voice than Siri.
- Google Voice returns results a lot faster than Siri.
While both Siri and Google Voice interfaces will still suffer from having limited voice recognition, when they do return results, Google Voice will do it better.
