All of us have heard about SIRI. It is a wonderful feature developed by Apple and featured in iPhone 4S. SIRI, an “intelligent assistant” takes order in simple English and responds. This feature made android users envy iPhone users. Google did not pay much interest in bringing this feature in its android OS but android developers cared about android users and they brought some cool SIRI alternatives for Android devices. There are a lot of free and paid apps in Google Play Store which are SIRI alternatives, but I have compiled a list of top 5 android apps which are worth trying and they just work fine.
1. Iris.(alpha): This tops the chart because of the number of times downloaded and reviewed. It has been downloaded more than 1 million times and it has over 53000 reviews. It’s not just a SIRI clone for android. It has taken android to a new level. Probably the best app for voice assistant purpose, it answers questions right from your search for a place to the ways to handle relationships. Some of the features include: calling someone from contacts, texting someone from phonebook, find nearby places, play music, movie reviews, news, etc.
2. Assistant (speektoit): Another heavily downloaded and highly rated voice assistant app. It gives you lot of options to choose from for your assistant, it can be a handsome agent, old professor, sexy blonde or a smart brunette girl. It does pretty much everything including finding your answers for technology, using social services to update your information, finding places, playing songs, etc. New York Times rated it among their list of Top 10 apps.
3. Skyvi: Another powerful voice assistant for android. It also does pretty much the same thing like updating status of facebook and twitter, finding places, checking weather, finding movies, call and text contacts, ask misc question related to almost anything, etc. It’s also available for free in Google Play Store but I somehow don’t like the interface of Skyvi over Speaktoit assistant and Iris.
4. EVA Virtual Assistant: Like every other app, this app also claims to be the best one in its class. EVA’s features are also pretty much same like the one’s I have mentioned above. Its UI is quite good and the app runs pretty smooth. The extra remarkable feature that it offers is scheduling a task. You want something done by EVA on a particular day or time, it can be scheduled. It also works smoothly with most of the Bluetooth headsets. It is pretty expensive compared to the free ones mentioned above, but if you want to try it before buying, you can download the free version from here.
5. Andy – SIRI for Android: This is not very popular SIRI alternative for android but the reviews suggest it’s pretty good. I dint find it much attractive when I used it in my Samsung galaxy pro. The main reason was its ugly interface. Rest its pretty much same.
Well these are the best SIRI alternatives or best voice assistants for android. You must try SIRI feature on android, it is going to make your life easier. If you need this feature in your android browser, please check out this article.
