I also tested Siri, as a yardstick.
Google Voice is completely different. Google Voice is a voicemail, SMS, and call forwarding service.

"Google voice actions" is also integrated into Google now, along with voice search, places, weather, etc. Google Now takes a lot of various google services and wraps it up into one great package.
