This Service was really a useful one for many who rely on SMS to get the latest updates and especially people in United States rely heavily on this service to get Weather updates and i was using this service some time back and must say it was quite amazing and instead of browsing and doing a quick Google Search, getting notified via SMS is always quick and easy to get the necessary info.

But what more shocking is that Google shuts down this service all of a sudden without prior notice and yet an official announcement has to be made and this news seems to known from Google Product forums and acknowledged by other SMS Users.

SMS Search has been shutdown. You can continue to search the web at google.com on any device.

When tried to send a request via SMS to Google SMS Search Number the above message is the One which i receive and also when tried to access SMS Search Page, which shows 404 Error Page and considering the smartphone growth and usage by everyone, Google might decide to go for next level by dumping some legacy services such as this one, But most people still rely on SMS based service which  very well make their life much easier by getting the required info which they need.
