A glance at the updated version of the Google Search app shows that Google is gradually removing its voice search feature for Google's assistant. Voice search can be found in and within the Google Search app. The iconic microphone icon when tapped will allow the user to request an oral search query. But now Google wants the virtual digital assistant to handle all voice searches.
The first 9 to 5Google fine-tuning can be found in the Google Search app (also known as the Google app) in version 10.24 or 10.28 beta. The microphone icon once found on the right side of the search bar has been replaced with the Google Assistant icon. In addition, the old search bar included the words "Tell Hai Google", while the updated version now reads "Ask a Question".
New look, old view, and some of the available Google Assistant actions
Google Assistant is at the heart of the Google ecosystem. It is believed to be the best digital assistant among the top four, a group that also includes Amazon, Apple's Siri and Microsoft Cortana. According to Google, there are already over 1 million actions that Google Assistant can handle. And with the help of the Google Home Intelligent Home Speaker and the Nest Hub Intelligent Displays, replacing voice search with Google Assistant is a way for the company to sync all of its applications and devices.
Apple had a lead with Siri but Google Assistant surpassed Apple's digital assistant
Google has not yet completed this update, but it's easy to see if it has hit your phone. Just open the Google Search app and check which icon is in the search bar.
The first virtual assistant found on a smartphone was Siri, who debuted with Apple iPhone 4s on October 4, 2011. Apple acquired the technology when In 2010, Siri is a console app in the Apple App Store, and developers plan to offer for Android and BlackBerry devices. Although Apple had a lead in this space, some of the company's former employees said last year that Apple lost its vision for Siri the next day after it was first introduced on the iPhone 4s; It was the day Steve Jobs died.
Meanwhile, several tests have shown that Google Assistant recognizes questions and gives better answers than Syrie. In the past year, extensive testing of the four large digital assistants of Loup Ventures venture capital firm and its analyst, Jin Munster, was conducted. The test showed that Google Assistant responded correctly or performed the right actions better than its rivals in all five categories that were tested (Local, Commerce, Navigation, Information and Command). Siri finished last in three of the categories and received just 12% of the navigation requests. Alexa finished second in the four categories, while Cortana finished third in three of the classifications.
The aforementioned test was conducted on intelligent speakers. A few months later, Lup laid the assistant again, but this time they used different smartphones. Google's Pixel XL Assistant understood all 800 of the questions asked. Siri did not understand 11 questions while Alexa and Cortana missed 13 and 19 respectively. Google Assistant won four of the five categories (Local, Trade, Navigation and Information) until he finished second in one. Siri ranks second in the four categories, outpacing Google Assistant in command. Alexa was everywhere with Information, three graduates third (Local-tie, Commerce, Information, Command) and finished last in a category (Navigation). Cortana was last ranked in three categories (Trade, Information, Command) and finished third (Local-tie, Navigation).
