Nokia S60 Smartphones Get Google Search by Voice

 Nokia S60 Smartphones Get Google Search by VoiceMy Nokia E71 has a full QWERTY keyboard, so I don’t have too much trouble typing things into the Google Mobile App to search for whatever I need. That said, some S60 phones don’t have keyboards and, even with those that do, some people don’t want to bother with typing. That’s why Search by Voice has finally made its way to Nokia.

Google Search by Voice has been available in the Google Mobile App for the iPhone and BlackBerry for a while, but folks with a Nokia smartphone have been left out in the cold. This is a shame, really, considering that the Nokia S60 platform is still among the most popular internationally.

In a nutshell, you boot into the updated Google Mobile App as you normally would, but then you can hold down a key and speak into your phone for any Google search. This works for finding pictures, nearby eateries, currency conversions, and more. The search results are swayed by your physical location too.

Watching the video demo below, you can learn how you can use your search to initiate search queries, looking for French restaurants in Brighton and pictures of the Queen’s coronation. That’s what we all want, right?
