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 m.google.com/maps 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.
