Vocie search windows mobile symbianHot on the heels of giving Search by Voice to Blackberry and Android users, Google has just announced that Windows Mobile and Symbian customers can now join in the fray.

According to the Google Mobile Blog, “search by voice lets you easily search for anything by simply speaking your search terms instead of typing them. Just open Google Maps, press your phone’s “call” button, and clearly speak your search term like “Park Plaza.”

There are a few other changes as well, including some new settings, languages and an option to report a problem.  In order to use the service, you’ll need to install the latest version of Maps, then safely search to your heart’s content.
