Google’s new Siri Competitor for Android: “Google Assistant”

Although the Android OS has a voice recognition software, it does not have a fully interactive one in which it will talk back to the user of the function. Apple’s Siri completes this task by allowing a user to do a long process at the speed of thought. We’ve heard rumors before, but nothing reliable until now.

It may be called Majel, which like the name Siri, means nothing to the functional users. It is believed that it will not be coming out until perhaps the 4th quarter of 2012, which is the time “Jellybean” Android OS is set to release. Once released, it will be open sourced which means developers can modify its service to work with their own Android creations. Until now, keep using
