My name is Brian.

I'm a voice researcher here at Google.

I'm here to tell you about Goog-411,

Google's new 411 service.

It's totally free, it's real easy to use.

Call 1-800-GOOG-411.

That's 1-800-4664-411.

So you say where you are.

GOOG-411 OPERATOR: What city and state?

BRIAN: Mountain View, California.

You could also type in a zip code.

And then you say what you're looking for.

GOOG-411 OPERATOR: What business name or category?

BRIAN: Pizza delivery.

GOOG-411 OPERATOR: Number one--

BRIAN: Choose the one you want.

GOOG-411 OPERATOR: Danny's Fast Pizza.

BRIAN: Number one.

And Goog-411 will connect you.

GOOG-411 OPERATOR: Connecting.

BRIAN: Yep, I'd like the pizza delivered.

Yep, thanks.

It's really simple.

It's totally free.

Ah, these guys are really good.

And if you call GOOG-411 from your cell phone, you can also

say "text message," and GOOG-411 will send you a text

message with information about the business you've selected.

If your phone has internet, you can also say "map it," and

we'll send you a map of the

neighborhood around the business.

And this is the GOOG-411 team.

One of them is the voice of Google.

Can you guess which one?

MALE SPEAKER: Soon, we will reveal the secret identity of

the voice behind GOOG-411.

In the meantime, you might want to pick up the phone and

see if you can match the voice with the correct team member.
