Google Launches 411 Service

Like most local 411 services, “Goog-411” (nicknamed after the service’s phone number, 1-800-GOOG-411) offers users the ability to find businesses of nearly any ilk and even connects callers directly when they find the information they’re looking for. Goog-411 also offers something that most 411 services do not: the ability to receive that information via text message to a mobile phone. Simply saying the words “text message” to the automated system after receiving query results will prompt the system to send the user an SMS with those same results.
