Goog 411 Updated to 'Single Phrase' Voice Search

A few days late but Goog-411, Google’s voice driven 411 directory assistance that uses the same business listings and rankings as Google Maps, was upgraded to only require a single business + city search phrase. 

Goog-411 now starts the search with the phrase: Say the business and the city and state…If that query is not understood the service reverts back to the requirement to entry first say just the city and state. Once that query is answered it then notes: What business name or category?.
