Google Search by voice extended to Nokia phones

Soon after announcing its free Maps utility for Android, Google's Search utility has now been extended to allow all users of Nokia's Symbian S60 mobile phones to use the utility via voice commands alone. In addition, if you happen to speak Mandarin Chinese, then it will handle that too.


According to the Google development team, "The new version of Google Mobile App places a shortcut to Google search on your Nokia phone's home screen, allowing you to search using your voice or by typing. You can search for anything - from "movie times", to "fish 'n chips", to "masala dosa." It doesn't matter if you're in London or Bangalore: we'll use your location to give you nearby results. And Google Mobile App shows search results in the application, so you don't have to wait for a web browser to launch to get an answer."


Note that the application is for version 3 of Nokia S60 - more recent phones running version 5 (touch screen) are not yet supported.

To download the new version of Google Mobile App on your Nokia S60 phone, visit from your phone's browser. For questions and support, visit the Help Forum.
