On Monday, Live Search 411 was officially launched. This voice-activated local search service lets you do local searches right from your phone just by speaking. To use the service, call 1-800-CALL-411 (1-800-225-5411) from any phone in the U.S. and say where you are and what you are looking for. The service can also send you text messages, maps, traffic maps, and text-based directions. Live Search 411 goes a step beyond simply providing you with business information though - several handy features make this new service really stand out, including:
- The ability to connect to any business listing you find for free
- Receive SMS links to maps, driving directions and traffic conditions (just say "text me the info")
- Get movie showtimes and even buy tickets over the phone (via a partnership with Fandango)
- Share text messages of business details with friends so they can easily meet you there
- Hear the current weather conditions and the forecast
- Quickly access travel resources like airlines, hotels, and rental cars
- Remember your personalized locations for movie theaters, weather and traffic, and your preferences for receiving text messages.
