I assume most of you are like myself, stuck at home reading mindless blogs on a lonley weekend. What’s your excuse? Nowhere to go, nothing to do? With Google SMS, you get the ability to search items, movie times, maps, sport scores, and weather reports in your local area. Just text message your search query to 466453 (‘GOOGLE’ on most devices) and you’ll receive a message back with the searched results.

Here is a list of examples given from the Google sms site.


Search Feature Sample Query
Local sushi H3B 1Y8
Weather weather ottawa
Glossary define zenith
Sports score lakers
Movies movies R3H 0H4
Stocks stock bmo
