Google launches help service 411 with SMS replies
Now, instead of calling in the inquiry services of operators (at high tariffs) by phones 411, you can dial 1-800-GOOG-411 (1-800-466-4411) and find out the required number.
Information can also be obtained using a text message. A service created by Google Labs specialists uses information from Google Local directories. He works on the IVR system and uses voice recognition technology, rather than "live" operators, like 1-800-FREE411 service. The strengths of the service are a free connection, a category search property, and an automatic response via SMS. Weak - all the disadvantages of recognition technologies and limited power (the service is simply not always available). Nevertheless, all the advantages of the service are obvious and it threatens to become a serious competitor to the current reference services.
