Microsoft recently announced Traffic, a new addition to its Live Search 411 (1-800-CALL-411 or 1-800-225-5411). The company has tied up with INRIX, a leading provider of traffic to offer latest traffic reports in your neighborhood or along a route. Moreover, users can also personalize information by saving your start and end points. The new feature also provides estimated drive time so that users can plan accordingly. The best part about this latest addition is that you can call and search from any phone, simply by saying it ( no need to type).
However, it was recently found that this feature can be enjoyed by only US businesses. In response, MSNDude, an official Microsoft representative said:
Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“Unfortunately, we currently do not support local listings outside of the US. However, I believe the local listings team is working to expand this in the near future.Ă˘â‚¬Âť
