Siri is the most recognizable mobile assistant there is. Unfortunately it is only available on iOS devices. But thankfully we do have best Siri apps for Android which indecently are just not called Siri. You get my point right? Apple is overly protective of its mobile assistant. The best Siri Apps for Android are the ones which help you in your day to day life. Like driving to work, calling cousin on his birthday and making a presentation on time.
A good mobile assistant should be helpful while remaining non-instrusive. No one likes a nosy assistant right. Almost every app on the list tries to be that compliant nice assistant except for Robin. Robin wants to drive you home by herself. Anyways combine these great apps with a To-Do list and a Notepad and you will not forget anything in your life.
Note: All of these apps were tested on Samsung Galaxy S3 running Android 4.4 Kit Kat except Dragon Mobile Assistant. The Dragon assistant was tested on Asus Memo Pad HD 7 running Android 4.2.2. All of the apps performed well.
The best Siri app for android is also a completely free one. Assistant sets the bar amazingly high for every other app to follow. The app has everything you may require from a virtual assistant. From map navigation to great voice recognition and from setting a meeting to sending invites, the assistant can handle it all. The smooth and easy to use interface and friendly quips from the virtual assistant makes the Siri app for android a charm to use.Show Downloads
- Free & $5.99
Pocket Assistant features a full 3D modeled virtual assistant which reacts to your questions and inquiries. Although this feature makes the Siri app for android look a little cartoonish, it actually adds to the interactive-ness and immersion. There are 4 characters to choose from and you can also change their appearance. From alarm clocks to using Google Maps, all is handled quite nicely. The app tries to give a human face to the virtual assistant and somewhat succeeds. The animations could use a little work and this is the only reason it is at second place. The free version comes with IAPs and ads.
The paid version of Pocket Assistant removes the need to buy voice packs and outfits via in app purchases. The app will have almost $19 worth of content unlocked from the get go. Apart from that, there is not much added in terms of usability and utility.Show Downloads

EVA – Voice Assistant
Eva is a good Siri app for android but it has a very cramped interface. Eva also has the tendency to sometime read very quickly making it hard for a non-English speaker to understand. But it has the best feature list and is quite reliable. This Siri app for android is not only fast but provides ample guidance. The interface may be congested but Eva takes the time to explain everything in the lengthy tutorial. And to be honest, the tutorial is a must if you want to take full advantage of the app. The free version of Eva is basically a 28 days trial.
The paid version of this Siri app for android removes the time limit. The free trial version already has access to full features. Nothing substantial is added to the app in terms of usage and features.Show Downloads
ANDY (Siri like Assistant)
Andy is a great Siri app for android with its simple to use interface and no hassle results. Andy is an intelligent personal assistant who is an excellent student companion. Searches regarding history, science and even religion are displayed almost instantly. The app also displays text and continues to read it to you. We highly recommend Andy for those who like to refer to Wikipedia for homework (we don’t endorse plagiarizing though). Nothing is off limits with Andy, technology, mathematics, logics. Philosophy and everything in between can be accessed with ease.
The paid version of Andy adds a lot of new features into the already robust offering. The most important feature or the lack thereof is the removal of ads. The ads are quite intrusive in the free app and the paid version really improves productivity and usability.Show Downloads
Top Assistant is nothing like Siri but nails the assisting thing well. You won’t be speaking to this app in anyway and will still require manual touch for doing stuff. This app comes into play when you are doing multitasking on a daily basis. For example if you are updating a spreadsheet and need to do quick calculations, you can launch the calculator via dedicated on screen button provided with Top Assistant. Dialing numbers and searching contacts or emailing the test results will be come magically easier. You don’t need an expensive Samsung smartphone to multitask either; this app will work with almost every Android device.Show Downloads
Robin – the Siri Challenger
Robin is a light weight and compact digital assistant app for Android. The app is extremely fast in booting up and becomes ready to use in no time at all. The app also comes with a peculiar interface which makes it seems low impact too. Tap on the icon and the app will pop up with a transparent background which shows you your app drawer. This can be a little distracting for those with colorful and eye catchy icons on their drawer. The app performs well even in light traffic. Standard features are all very well implemented, but texting is really something special. The app can recognize a lot of different accents as well.Show Downloads
Indigo Virtual Assistant
Indigo has the best looking interface in the 10 best Siri app for android list. The indigo and white combination feels natural and gives a high end vibe. Controlling music with voice feels novel especially if you like to exercise or cook. With this Siri app for android you can translate on the go and even uses your native language to control the app. Getting directions and navigating to new restaurants is quite easy as well. Indigo is connected to several services like Google, Facebook, Twitter, Wikipedia and Yahoo so you can check and update accounts and details on the go.Show Downloads
Jeannie is a good Siri app for android, the concept and the tech is all great. From calling and dialing to texting via voice, this app has it all. Simple phrases will allow you to make changes not only to the app but other apps as well. For example if you want to set the alarm clock to 7 am on Friday, all you have to do is say “wake me up at 7 on Friday morning” (Best alarm clock apps) and the app will take care of the rest. So why is it placed so down the list? For one, the app has limited features in the free version. You will have to pay $3 in order to access the full version. Secondly we are not fans of the overly blocky interface.Show Downloads
While there is no exact Siri app for android, many come close and apps like Assistant even surpass it in some regards.
