Google Cuts The Cord On GOOG-411
Google announced they are discontinuing 1-800-GOOG-411, a voice activated local search service they launched in 2007.
Google promised to put “all of our resources into speech-enabling the next generation of Google products and services across a multitude of languages.” Wow, “all” might be a bit of an exaggeration?
I don’t believe this will impact search by SMS.
