Google Launches SMS service
Oct 7, 2004, 1:57 PM by (staff)
Google today launched Google SMS, a free information service that provides several types of information in response to special queries sent via text message. The service includes business and residential phone and address listings, product pricing, and word definitions. Other features include limited Google web search results, a natural-language calculator and unit converter tool, and zip- and area-code lookups. The service is available now in the U.S., and is free aside from normal carrier charges for text messaging. Queries are sent to 46645 (GOOGL), and replies should arrive via SMS within a minute. The company plans to add additional query types in the future.
