Google Maps 4.1 on WinMo and Symbian S60 handsets get voice search

22 Apr

The very convenient option of search by voice in Google Maps for mobile was so far enjoyed by BlackBerry and the robot-themed handset users. But yesterday, Google happily announced the inclusion of search by voice option in Google Maps 4.1 for WinMo and Symbian S60 phones. This great feature saves you the trouble of typing long addresses by just simply letting you pronounce the search items.

After opening Google maps, instead of typing, users have to press the ‘call button’ and then speak out the search term. Another change that users will find is the redesigned settings page with various language choices and other supported options such as multiple English accents and Mandarin Chinese.

 

To install the latest version of Google Maps for mobile 4.1, WinMo and Symbian S60 handset users have to visit m.google.com/maps from the phone’s browser.
