Confirmed, just tried it on my Nexus 7 and GS3 and it does indeed praise the ipad!

It's not like anyone uses Google now and would use it anyway, between the horrible voice synth and the terrible voice recognition. but then I don't know if siri is any better.

You think those are bad? Try the WP version of voice recognition, oh my god. It'll tell you everything BUT the thing you asked for. :laugh:

Siri was better before Apple took over.

i think if you have it set properly the voice synth sounds like a real person compared to Siri, I also do not have any issues with the voice recognition. Then again i find the tool very useless for things like that and mainly use it for traffic, weather, and shipped packages.

sounds like an easter egg thing to me, or some kind of joke put in by a developer o.o why is everyone assuming it's a glitch?

Have used GN on several devices and know people who use it as well. No problem with voice recognition unless I don't speak clearly. I use GN a few times per day.

GN voice does sound better than siri. I used GN basically the same stuff.

when tried the voice rec on my WP7 Trophy worked great, at least compared to GN, which despite saying it supports the language can't find a street name to save it's life. as for the actual now features. I went to a meeting in a city ~3 hours away, I left like 3,5-4 hours early for the meeting, driving there, the first thing GN told me about the meeting was later I did a bit of shopping and was in the hotel where we had the meeting and some 20-30 minutes before the meeting it told me I had to leave if I was going to make the meeting, in the hotel I was already in...

and well firstly, it never warned me when it would actually have been important which was before I left, secondly, it seems absolutely pointless as I would never trust an automated assistant like that to remind me to get up, or leave to make it on time or to even warn me of a meeting where I am, and with good reason it seems. better to just set your own alarms on the calendar.

Um.. Google Now's voice recognition and voice synth is at least a thousand times better than SIRI's... Were you using actual Google Now, or that dreadful clone of Samsungs? Because THAT one DOES suck balls.

don't have a samsung so :p I don't buy crap phones with the worst optimized software/OS that requires you to use twice as powerful hardware to get android to run as good as a properly optimized software from a proper manufacturer.

It's google. They like to be funny, my guess is this is intentional.

And what makes you say that.

I test phones for a certain OEM who I can't name due to an NDA. I get loads of low spec devices for 3rd world markets that run Android plenty speedily; easily as well as the high spec phones do. The big difference is no telco customisations or bloatware.

It's just the same as laptop OEM's clogging them up with crapware. Who in their right might DOESN'T wipe all that crap off when they get a new laptop? Same thing with Android, it's just much harder to remove the preinstalled bloat.

umm and specifically said that unlike certain other OEM's Samsung is crap at optimizing their OS. heck even Google said this and praised the certain other OEM for being their best OEM partner because not only are the the best(albeit a bit slow) at providing upgrades for their older devices, but they actually properly optimize the android code and drivers for their hardware, to get much better performance than say samsung and other big spec racer brands that focus more on always having the latest version of android as fast as possible on their new devices and having new top spec devices in stores as fast as possible.

besides, my phone currently runs CM10 JB, but honestly the ICS from the OEM was so well optimized i didn't really notice much performance improvement.

I have a Galaxy Note 2 as my personal phone. Whilst the Samsung voice recognition software stinks, Google Now is pretty much perfect. Hasn't made a single mistake, has a great voice, and is way faster than SIRI could ever hope to be.

Well I don't use Siri, and I also don't use GN, since it's pretty crap, it's "now" features are unreliable and the only time I seen them do anything was the useless get to meeting alert that was at a completely wrong time. as for the voice rec, its faster and more reliable to just type in the address I need.

Well, maybe it's just that gibberish you lot speak in Norway. :p (joke!)

Google Now is NOT Samsung's software, it's part of Jellybean. Odds are you were using some 3rd party app.

I already told you I don't use Samsung, I don't buy crap. and no, I used Google now. the official app. Well technically not an app since it's more than just an app, but anyway.
