Google Maps Adds Experimental Voice Search

I don’t know why Google is hating on the 8300 & 8800 series but this is cool none the less. They just announced that they are now supporting voice search in their latest version of Google Maps for the 8110, 8120, & 8130. It uses the same technology as the free GOOG-411 service many people use.8100-tutorial-infinite

You can read the tutorial and all about it at this link. You can install it by heading to from your BlackBerry browser.

Using voice search is as simple as 1, 2, 3:

  1. Press “0” to center the map view around your location
  2. Press the left-side key and hold it while you say the name or type of business you’re looking for (for example, “pizza”)
  3. When you’re done speaking, release the left-side key, and our voice recognition technology will figure out your request and find the business you’ve been looking for, no typing needed.
