Google Now slowly catching up with Siri



Apple and Google are spending an incredible amount of time and millions of dollars to develop their voice assistants. Recently, a very clear trend of users willingness to talk with its own smartphone, the mobile device can perform a particular task with just a single voice command. For example, find out the weather or due to the last match “Manchester United” as if you were talking to one of his friends – ten years ago it was difficult to imagine.

Nevertheless, the existing voice assistants are far from ideal. They realize not all the phrases (and not the first time), work very badly in public places and have a lot of other minor issues. To do this, corporations are constantly working on improving their assistants , and outside observers, like the analyst Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray, periodically summarize their activities.

At this time, Munster figured out how to change Siri from August this year, when a month later assistant already running the new iOS 7 , writes MacRumors. Additionally, the expert compared the recent performance data for December last year and came to conclusions quite enjoyable.

According to his research, over the past year Siri really become much better understanding of the interlocutor and, most importantly, to respond to his requests. In addition, Apple made more correct work as an assistant in the “uncontrolled environment” (shopping center, public transport and so on), although overall responses to questions increased by only four percent compared with last year.

But if we compare the success Siri service with Google Now , until the last shows a more impressive growth than voice assistant from Apple. If in August this year Google Now answered correctly about 61% of the requests, but this time caught up on this criterion with Siri and settled at around 79 percent. Thus, its index increased by almost 20%, while Siri boasts only two percent growth.

It can be seen that every good assistant in his field – if Siri and Google Now plays in the search and navigation, the management of the operating system it is no equal.

Because of this intense competition Apple is trying to remove references to the pages in the Google search queries from Siri, and she is doing well. Use Google to search using Siri this year dropped from 27 to 4 percent.
