Not everybody like Siri. Users complain that “Siri rarely, does what it is told to do”. The problem is Siri’s voice recognition approach. If you think that Google Now Voice understands your voice better then you can use Google Voice search (in Google Now) to recognize voice commands and then send them to Siri for execution. Google Now voice search seems to be fast, accurate and more responsive. Google’s voice recognition system is way better than Siri’s.
