    Can the Siri equivalent on Android do the following:

    1. Set reminders
    2. Send emails
    3. Send texts messages

    I will be using the Note2.

    Thanks.

    It can and more. A lot more. Full list of Google Now commands: http://www.addictivetips.com/android/google-now-commands-smart-cards-list/


    Notes & Reminders
    Commands:

    - “Remind me to <task> at <time>”

    - “Wake me up in <time>”

    - “<action> at <time>”

    - “Self note to <message>”

    - “Set alarm for <time>”

    Contact & Communication
    Commands:

    - “Call <contact>”

    - “Send <message> to <contact> via text”

    - “<contact name>” (shows the contact card)

    - “Call <contact/place> in <location>”

    - “Send a text to <contact> <message>”

    - “Email to <contact>, B C C <contact(s)>, Subject <subject>, message <message>”



    Examples:

    “Send email to Aatif Khan, Subject, post fix, Message, I have completed fixing my own posts”
    “Call KFC in Brooklyn, New York”
    “Send SMS to dad mobile please call me A S A P”
    “Call help center”
    “Send I cannot come right now to Carl via text”
    Note: Google Now voice commands can be used to place calls in offline mode, too.

    I prefer to text and email by hand but I have played around with the google now voice commands from the website onthecouchagain provided and they work well. I won't be using it for that purpose but glad its available to me.

    Google Now is limited with alarms and reminders.

    It doesn't like dates.

    Google Now says:

    "Sorry, alarms and reminders support times of day but not dates."

    If you want something similar to Siri on the Note 2, just use the built-in S-voice. Double click on home button.

    S-voice is laggy and sluggish though. The lady voice in S-Voice sounds freaky.

    Google Now is very pleasing to the senses in terms of colors, fonts and voice interaction. Google did a great job with it.
