Google’s Answer to Siri – Voice Majel Assistant

December 27, 2011

Google, Hot and Latest

Google is all set to come up with its reply to the most hyped app for 2011, Apple’s Siri. The project codename is Majel and supposedly will be an update of the app “Voice Actions” for Android.

Now, it’s not exactly same as Siri wherein the phone responds to any question raised by the user. Majel performs certain actions based on preset commands, voice calling, texting, search and destination lookup. The present commands are very intuitive and language understanding is very clear. You can search many things, any restaurants, shop, send messages, make calls, get weather report, all by talking normally to your phone, the way you would do it with a friend.

For making Majel, Google purchased Clever Sense, company which created the app called “Alfred” that allows voice commands.

The success depends on what happens when Majel is launched. You never know, seeing the latest copyright lawsuits running, Apple might sue Google for copying Siri.
