Google’s competitor for Apple’s Siri is codenamed “Majel” and could be launched before the end of the year according to AndroidandMe. Geeks are aware that Majel is a reference to Majel Barrett-Roddenberry, wife of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry and the voice of the computer on Starships as well as various roles on several of the Star Trek shows.
Googleâ€™s Voice Actions is currently in use on most Android phones. While Siri functions primarily from natural speech, Google’s VA operates through direct and specific commands. Majel is intended to change that.
While December is possible, that doesn’t leave much of a window to get in before the end of the year. January may be more realistic.
