Google Mobile Search adds voice...

Google's S60 'portal' search utility, 'Google Mobile App' just got itself an update to v2.03(8), bringing voice searching - and it works rather impressively. Bring up the S60 3rd Edition utility in the usual way (e.g. by pressing 'C' on the homescreen) and then press and hold the green call key to speak your search string. Some screenshots and links below.

Read on in the full article.

Use on the N97

I have this on the N97 and discovered that the backspace key (<-) works as the 'C' key. So to quick start, slide open the keyboard and hit the backspace key.

Amazing app. Works really well on my 5800. This app will revolutionize all apps.

I have tried it on my nokia 5800. Voice search function is good, but not good enough to recognize all the phraces. Only 50% of the phraces are recognized while i tested it.
More disappointingly, it does not support virtual keypad, making it more or less useless for 5800. Thus we can't type any search keywords and can only be used with voice search. But it will not be problem with N97 as it has keypad also. Eagerly awaiting s60 v5 support...

Thumbs down barely works

Of several phrases I tried, it only recognized pizza on my E71x, let alone being able to search one of the calculations like the guy in the video did. 2 thumbs down!

Thumbs down Won't work

Installed this latest update on my E71 and it won't start. "Clicking" the icon simply does nothing. Uninstalled, reinstalled, restarted the phone, nothing.

No luck on N93i

Installed ok on my N93i but as with the others, nothing happens when I click the Google icon. On the home screen I do occasionally see the "Press pencil to search" box, but nothing happens when I press the pencil key.

Thumbs up

Very impressive. I've been waiting for this application for a long time. It works super well on my Nokia 5800. Some words like "Bowen" it struggles to understand and shows up the completely wrong word, which is mega disappointing because how are people going to find my lookatbowen.com website through Google Voice?

It might just be my South African accent that is confusing it (lol), but my others websites like Wilkinson's World or Crunch Victims are working perfectly.

Gosh, I wonder what @ClintonJeff of http://zomgitscj.com is going to think about this application, especially when he has a problem with people talking out aloud on headsets or headphones (Ha Ha, Jokes if you are reading this Clinton). I am sure you can see the advantages of this hands free application.

Google Application

I was starting using this application and It is really quite impressive for S60 mobile phones. It s is bringing the voice searching. Once a search is finished. It is howing the results sorted by distance from your current location, in the usual way. It is easy to operate this google mobile application. I heard that They are planning to sell the mobile phones.

I tried it on my old n93 and it works wonderfully. It did take a while to launch though the 1st couple of times. Wonderful app.
