Google’s iOS Voice Search app absolutely demolishes Siri in a speed test [video]

Google Voice Search App

Gizmodo decided pit Apple’s (AAPL) Siri against Google’s (GOOG) new iOS Voice Search application in a speed test, and the results were not pretty for Siri. Although Gizmodo found neither voice search app to be perfect, it said overall that Google’s app “came up with a quicker response almost every time, was more accurate, and frankly sounded much less grating than Siri.” In a video of the speed test, it’s clear to see that Google Voice Search almost instantly comes up with responses to questions while Siri takes at least a couple of seconds to “think” before coming up with its reply. Google first released its Voice Search app for iOS last week, marking the first time the company had ever released an app for the iPhone capable of directly taking on Siri’s functionality. Gizmodo’s full video is posted below.
