Google Search App for iOS Updated, Faster and Easier to Use

The Google Mobile team has announced that the Google Search app for iOS has been updated and that the update makes the app even faster and even easier to use than ever before. The users of the Google Search app offered their feedback and they spoke loud and clear – they wanted the app to be faster. Google complied and updated the Google Search app, addressing the speed issues the users mentioned.

As Google Software Engineer Nirav Savjani explained, the latest version of Google Search is “up to 20% more responsive as you type search queries and interact with it.” To make the app speedier, the “Just Talk” feature that allows you to perform searches by speaking into your iOS-powered device is turned off by default. To turn it back on just go to the Voice Search menu under Settings.


The Google Search app also comes with some visual changes that area meant to make it even easier to read search results. Reading small fonts or taping on a link when the fonts are small can be a bit of a bother. To address this problem, the Google Search app comes with an improved look and feel for search results – the font of the search results is bigger and the entire search result is now a tap target rather than just the link.

It was back in March that the Google Mobile team was announcing the introduction of the Google Search app for iOS. It was introduced to replace the Google Mobile app and it was a redesigned, faster version of the Google Mobile app. The Google Search app came with a couple of new features, like a new toolbar and new interaction options.

The Google Search app, which is offered free of charge and is available in a multitude of languages, works with any device powered by iOS 3.0 or later. You can grab it from the App Store or by scanning the QR code presented below.
