Google Voice Search for iOS is outstanding

by Volker Weber

This is a big slap in Apple's face. Remember how Apple shipped Siri as an exclusive feature for the iPhone 4S, although it's a server app quite capable running on any iOS device? Even the iPad 2 would not run it.

Now Google is shipping a search app with voice input that runs on everything from the venerable iPhone 3GS. Not only that, it also runs rings around Siri. When Siri hasn't even decoded what you just said, Google already has the results.

Like Google Now, it's better in English than in German. But you will want to use your own language anyway.

That's very impressive! Whenever I see those three dots on apple voice input, I know I am doomed and may as well start typing.

Bei mir kommen allerdings nie ordentliche Antworten wie im Video. Immer nur eine Suchergebnisliste

Aha, es geht nur mit der Sprachsuche auf Englisch (U.S.)

Quite funny that the newest search app is available for any old iPhone but not for my not too old Samsung Galaxy SII. That's one huge disadvantage of Android that you can't update your device when you like to but have to wait for the graciousness of your provider.
