At this week's I/O conference Google is expected to launch its own voice assistance capability for Android.Android already has a voice assistant in the form of Android Voice Actions system which is limited one. But this new product which has been code-named Majel is expected to be a significant one. It has been hinted by HTC about Siri rival through its Twitter and Facebook page, Samsung already has something called S-Voice recently released on the Samsung Galaxy SIII, even LG week revealed Quick Voice, a personal voice-control assistant which features natural-language processing technology, write emails, built-in support for interactivity with 11 apps at its start. Even the Micromax has rolled out something called AISHA.
By far Siri on iPhone is the most praised voice assistance service. If Google manages to use its resources well, this new product will have fabulous capabilities. Google has capabilities in almost all the spoken language in the world and a deep understanding of them.
But then knowing a language and using that knowledge to devise a new application are two entirely different things. By looking at the Google's track record in creating technologies, we are very hopeful of a well made and useful application that can potentially be a game changer. This can bring voice activation tech to the masses as Android phones are much cheaper than that of iPhone.
