Now search is just a call away

Google allows users to phone a toll-free number and make a query.

Sharad Nanda from Pune is a kebab (meat dish) fan. On a trip to Delhi, he wanted to savour some kebabs. He could have easily phoned his friends for the exact location of eateries. Instead, he took out his cellphone, dialed a toll-free number and asked for kebab joints in a specified location. In less than a minute, he was given a choice of three places. He has much to thank the ‘voice search’, which internet search giant Google recently introduced in Hyderabad, Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore.
