Google SMS adds live sports scores

Mar 18 2006 - 04:02 PM ET | Backpage, SMS

Google updated its SMS search tool to include live sports scores. Competing SMS search service 4INFO has supported this feature for quite some time. To get a sports score via Google SMS, compose a new text message and put a team name or college in the body. Send it to 46645 (GOOGL).

We tested it out by sending the text, 'Duke' in hope of getting the latest scores from Duke's men's basketball team in the NCAA tournament. It worked, they beat George Washington 74-61 on a game earlier today. However we'll stick to using 4INFO because its message back included more info, in this case a box score for the George Washington vs. Duke game.
