In the past, a number of sources and publications have claimed that Google was officially working on a voice-based personal assistant which would be a direct competitor of Siri. However, so far, this couldn’t have been confirmed since Google seems to be rather secretive about it. However, a new Wall Street Journal report suggests that Google is continuing work on such a Siri competitor for its  Android devices.

When Apple launched iPhone 4S, Siri was definitely a feature which truly mesmerized the world since it was the first voice-based assistant who was this accurate. Naturally, this gave  Apple a huge edge over Android platform which was yet to jump the bandwagon of voice-based assistance.

Since then, we have been hearing that Google is working on a voice-based personal assistant. First, the rumor had it that Google was working on one ‘Project Majel.’ Then, it was claimed that the company was creating a voice-based assistant under the banner of a new project called ‘Google Assistant.’

And now, these rumors are back, this time WSJ reporting that not only Google has continued work on such a Siri competitor, it has rather accelerated that speed at which the work is being done. According to the WSJ report, “Google, meanwhile, has accelerated plans to launch its own Siri competitor that would work on Android-powered devices, people familiar with the matter have said.

The report further states, “In coming weeks, Google is expected to unveil a lower-priced Android tablet that it developed with Asustek Computer.” In a way, these two claims may connect and Google may have plans of launching its Siri competitor on the Nexus tablet that we have been hearing about.
