Voice Search Google Maps on Android

Google have released an upgrade to Google Maps for Android-powered phones. The new release lets you search Google Maps on your Android using your voice. If you are searching for an address or a business you can now speak your query and Google Maps will find it.

The new release has also made a few tweaks to Google Latitude. A new experimental feature of Latitude, called 'Updates', lets you communicate with friends and post messages. Clicking on Updates allows you to update your friends when you're at a particular location.

Update:
Mapperz found this video of voice search in action.
