SMS Text

Google just announced that its cool search by voice feature in Google Maps 4.1 is now available for Windows Mobile and Symbian S60 phones. This is the same voice activated search feature that BlackBerry and Android phone users have been enjoying for quite some time now.

So, if you have any Symbian S60 or Windows Mobile phone, you can now search for anything by simply speaking your search terms instead of typing them. To use this feature, you simply need to open Google Maps on your phone, press the “call” button and speak your search term clearly.  This feature works with all kinds of search on Google Maps for mobile such as places, specific businesses, types of businesses and addresses. In addition, this feature also lets you choose your preferred language including accents.

To enjoy this feature on your Windows Mobile or Symbian s60 phones, you must download and install the latest Google Maps for mobile 4.1 for Windows Mobile  and Symbian S60 phones. You can grab the app from m.google.com/maps using your phone’s browser.
