Siri to obtain new features with iOS 7
During today’s Apple press conference, it was revealed that Siri will be receiving an upgrade.
Just what does this upgrade entail? Well, Siri will be obtaining a new voice, specifically a new male voice. In addition, Siri will be able to receive several brand new voice commands, such as searching Wikipedia (and other sites).
Apple is obviously working to improve Siri after the negative reviews, but the push to fix Siri may be coming more from their competitors, Google. With Google Android’s voice command features, it would be little wonder that Apple feels the need to upgrade their own in order to compete (and possibly defeat) with the company.
Will the new Siri be able to stand up to Google Android’s voice features?
Thanks, NY TImes.
