Google Discontinued SMS Search Quietly

Google Discontinued SMS Search Quitely
 
 

Google has shut sown its SMS search service for mobile users who do not have data plans. It means that the search facility that Google offers for those who do not owes a smartphone, is now discontinued.


A facility to search for old fashioned mobile through SMS is discontinued. Addition and discontinuity of Google services is noticed every year as a process to streamline the company. The SMS Search was offered to users free of charge, while only telecom Carrier Company transacts for the number of SMSs being sent.

Users without any data plan or smartphone can search internet via sending query to a short number, for example “12345”. Google search engine compiles the query and responds with results via Short Messaging Service. User can search for stock information, weather forecast, local business listing, sports, news and translation of content. In the start of cell phones the data plans were expensive and smartphones also. It was a heaven like relief for users to access the information at no cost. While in these days, data plans are very cheap and smartphone prices have dropped more than 300 percent.

Many users have complained on Google discussion forum that they cannot access the service and given short number to send SMS is not responding to queries. Such reports are notices since Friday.  One of Google employee Jessica cleared the confusion that the service is not available anymore. Company has discontinued it because ordinary phones are going to be obsolete soon and there will be no requirement for such services.

The official company page still lists the service and link is yet working. But it leads to 404 an error page. When I tried to find out more about this product, I came across a Canadian page of SMS Search. It shows the same number which was used in USA that means it won’t work. In Canada the short code must be different. The increase in featured phones in USA and other markets are increasing every quarter. Last year mobile phone sales of simple ones dropped from 478 million to 472 million. On the other side, data plan enabled phones, tabs and smartphones have boosted from 58 million unites to 208 million.

Google employee Jessica said that company believes to provide better and innovative technologies to the humanity. So the terminations of certain less useful services are done every year. The useful services continue to be improved with addition of new features like Gmail, Cloud Drive and Packaged application. Along with current portfolio research in Google Glass Project is under way to change the course of humanity and turn the table of competition to whole new direction.
