Google Search by voice available for S60, in Chinese too

Google announced that the Google Search by voice feature is now available for Nokia’s Symbian S60 handsets. Integrated into the latest version of Google Mobile App, the feature lets you search for almost anything (from “restaurants” to “movie times” and so on) without having to type your queries.

Of course, if you prefer not to search by voice, you can always just type what you want to look for – there’s a shortcut that can be placed on your Nokia phone’s home screen for that.

Google also said that, from now on, Search by voice is available in Mandarin Chinese (the most spoken language in the world).

Mandarin Chinese voice recognition currently works with Nokia’s S60 devices only, but Google promises it will soon bring it to other platforms like Android and iPhone.
