Google launches voice search for Nokia smartphones

The new downloadable application has a speech recognition technology designed to understand Indian accents and gives location based results. It also helps users to search for updates on cricket and local business listings.

Google India has launched a free downloadable Google Mobile App for Nokia Series 60 phones. The application is equipped with speech recognition technology designed to understand Indian accents. Search by voice on mobile leads to Google Search and gives the user the required results.
The application also helps users to search for updates on cricket and local business listings. It automatically detects the user’s location and gives him the results closest to his current location. In addition to this, it also has a smart suggest feature which suggests search terms, minimising typing. In order to use this app, one needs to download it from m.google.co.in on the mobile phone.
Vinay Goel, head of products, Google India, says in a statement, “There’s no denying the importance of search by voice in India, and the extension of Google’s search by voice feature to more mobile handsets is a natural next step for our mobile strategy. With millions of new mobile users being added every month Google Mobile App’s will provide them with a quick and easy way to get the required information whenever and wherever they need it. With the launch of this service for Nokia S60 handsets we would be catering to a larger segment of mobile users, as a significant number of Nokia phone users are on the S60.”
Currently, Google India provides mobile services such as web search, SMS search, maps, photos and news. The voice search feature becomes the latest application to join Google’s mobile portfolio.
