Just tried out the new Google 411 Service. I have to admit, the service worked “ok” on the first try. For those of you who haven’t used the service yet, try it out. Dial 1-800-GOOG-411 (1-800-466-4411), say your City and State then the business your looking for. The service will do the rest.
A few of the extra features for mobile phone users. Just say:
- Text Message – Service will send you more info on the business
- Map It – If your phone has Internet, the service will send you a map of the business’s surrounding area.
All in all, check out the link above for all the details. Personally, when I tried out the voice commands above I had a little trouble but after I played with it a bit, I was able to get them to work.
All in all, a very GROOVY FREE service.
