eWeek’s reporting that Google has been granted a patent for technology that would allow you to conduct a search using your voice.

It doesn’t look like Google has any immediate plans to use the technology – it looks like they filed it just as protection at this stage – but eWeek suggests one use for it.

…Google could use the patented technology to improve its current cell phone search feature, which now relies on users entering text queries on their phone’s cramped telephone keypad…Google could also use the voice recognition feature to launch a competitive 411-style telephone number finder.
