Text Message Google For Quick Info

For a majority of the United States, you text your search to 466453 ('GOOGLE') and on most devices and Google will text message the results back. Google Mobile SMS (Beta) is only supported with certain carriers in different countries. Check to see if your carrier supports Google Mobile SMS.
