Like it has done it quite a few times before, Google has launched new features that will help Android and iOS users search and find what they need faster via the Google mobile homepage.
First of all, the mobile homepage now includes shortcut icons for commonly searched local categories, including restaurants, bars, coffee hops, gas stations and ATMs. These will provide quick access to more detailed results, as well as a map that “remains at the top of the page and adjusts automatically to the listing you are looking at.”
Another new enhancement is related to typing searches. Just like in the Google Search app, now you can add suggested phrases to the search box (in order to build more complicated searches) directly from Google.com.
Both new features are details in the videos embedded below:
The new Google search features only work on Android 2.2+ and iOS 4+ devices, and are available in 40 languages.
