    I hate Android but love how the voice search/command is fully integrated into all stock Google apps, and that the results are much faster and the voice transcription/understanding is far more accurate than Siri.

    They showed a few new things Siri can do today but it seems like once again Siri got the short end of the stick.

    Other than that I love the look and functionality of iOS 7, but Siri needs to be a bigger part of the experience.

    That changed Siri's voice it's less robotic, and more features. Siri is in beta.

    We don't know Siri's limitations yet. Give it some time. I am ecstatic about the new Siri update.

    A Siri API would have been nice. Then Siri would be able to be even smarter and more helpful.

    Yes, the new voices did sound smooth and not at all robotic like Siri now or Google's voice (which is a little less robotic than the current Siri).

    I'm just frustrated that Siri isn't even up to date with what Google has Android doing, nevermind offering features Android doesn't. I hate Android but I used my nephew's tablet for an hour a couple of weeks ago and the voice functions are so smooth and well integrated it was shocking. No mistakes understanding me, and the results were almost instant compared to how slow Siri can be. Those last two things need to improve as much as adding more features.

    Keep in mind, they always reserve some features for the new iPhone/iPad. Won't know the full story until the actual release date.
