This chart presents a comparative look at the features offered by the three primary players who use voice recognition as a component in voice-assisted services. While there are other options in the market offering pieces of voice-assisted functionality, only Apple, Google, and Vlingo deliver a fully integrated experience.
For the comparison, we looked at the Vlingo Virtual Assistant on Android, Google Voice Actions, Apple Voice Control (the “present” of iOS) and the combination of features available on Apple Voice Control, the Siri Personal Assistant and the Nuance Dragon applications (the potential “future” of iOS).
*Based on the current version of the Vlingo Virtual Assistant for Android. The platform’s capabilities allow for the wider deployment of Vlingo’s Virtual Assistant functionalities. Vlingo for iPhone expects to have the same capabilities enabled by the end of Q3.
