Google Click-to-Call Function Added to Emergency Numbers Feature

March 10, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Following up on their display of relevant emergency phone numbers at the top of the results page for searches, Google has now come up with another provision that makes emergency calling pretty easy. Earlier the relevant emergency phone numbers were displayed at the top of the results page for searches around poison control, suicide and other common emergencies in 14 countries.

This earlier service, as you know, had kicked off last year. The updated feature will help you to quickly call phone numbers that appear in search results.

This click-to-call functionality was first presented in mobile ads only. Now it has been expanded which allows users on mobile devices to quickly call phone numbers that appear in the results they have searched.

Those who are searching for contact information for services such as poison control centers, suicide hotlines, and other emergency numbers will now see links for the numbers that appear in the search results. All you have to do is to click on the link that will dial the number instantly.

Google has announced the new feature on the company’s blog. The click-to-call feature is now available on the mobile version of Google’s search site.

This addition to the click-to-call capabilities for all of these emergency information search results will help connect people with crucial information that they need immediately. It is also considered to be ideal for the emergency information feature that Google has been providing.
