Google Search by voice has grown up quickly. Some might say that search by voice has matured from a toddler to a tween. It's certainly been traveling across cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 English-speaking world and getting better at understanding a range of accents, from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 US, UK, India, and Australia. Today it's taking anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r big step — we're happy to announce that Google search by voice is available for Nokia S60 phones, and now understands Mandarin Chinese.

Nokia S60 phones are popular around cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 world. If you have an Nseries or Eseries phone such as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 N95 or E71, you're using S60. Many of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se phones have 12-digit keypads — good for making calls, but not so easy when you need to type a few words. Many of you have asked if we could build our search by voice feature for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se phones, and we've been working on this feature for a while.

The new version of Google Mobile App places a shortcut to Google search on your Nokia phone's home screen, allowing you to search using your voice or by typing. You can search for anything — from "movie times", to "fish 'n chips", to "masala dosa." It doesn't matter if you're in London or Bangalore: we'll use your location to give you nearby results. And Google Mobile App shows search results in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 application, so you don't have to wait for a web browser to launch to get an answer.

Although it has taken a little while to get this release ready, we have been planning cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 launch for some time as you can see from this footage from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 archives.



Up until now voice search has only been available in English, but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 new version of Google Mobile App for Nokia S60 devices works for Mandarin speakers, too. We're really proud of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 work we've done with Mandarin speech recognition, both because it's cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 most spoken language in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 world, and because of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 engineering challenge. To get Mandarin speech recognition to work, we had to learn a lot about this fascinating language — cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 differences between traditional and simplified Chinese, its tonal characteristics, automatic segmentation of text into words, pinyin representations of Chinese characters, sandhi rules, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 different accents and languages in China, unicode representations of Chinese character sets...cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 list goes on and on.

Mandarin speakers can now search by voice for complex queries like 清华大学附近的水煮鱼 (which translates to "water-boiled fish near Tsinghua University"). Although this only works on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Nokia S60 at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 moment, we're working on adding support for Mandarin speech recognition to our products on ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r mobile platforms, such as Android and iPhone. And bear in mind that this is a first version of our system in Mandarin, and it might not be as polished as our English version. For example, if you have a strong soucá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rn Chinese accent, it might not work as well as for people with a Beijing accent. However, our system will improve over time, so please give it a try!

I installed cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 google mobile app on my Nokia 5800 Xpress music phone. Series 60 5th edition OS. It works fine. The menu options and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 icons on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 screen respond to touch activation. Voice search works ok - I deliberately said hello hello - cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 app searched for Paulo Coelho! Minor phonetic cognition problem happens to voice recogition bots - like confusing I Scream and Ice Cream! But it is more our tongue's fault than cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 app's fault I guess.

The point is - it works like charm like everything google but for a tiny glitch. The search box does not respond to finger/stylus touch. I tapped it many times but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 touch type interface was not invoked. Please fix this numb spot.

I've considered myself to be one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 biggest Google fans. But, if Google mobile is going to be only about Android/iPhone and nothing else, it translates to "Free=Apathy".

Even an update blog from one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 engineers stating that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y are working on this would have done cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 trick!!!
