Google on Friday rolled out an updated for the Google Search app on iPhone and iPad leading to a much better user experience in terms of speed and convenience. The update is a real good one for the sports lovers as the app now shows the latest video highlights too.
The update majorly focuses on what Google calls as the Accelerated Mobile Pages or AMP. Pages marked under the AMP label load super quick on mobile internet connections and they are indicated by the lightning bolt symbol next to the title of the articles.
Here’s the full description of what’s new in the most recent version of the Google iOS app:
- Accelerated Mobile Pages (“AMP”) — news and articles from many of your favorite publishers will now load instantly. Look out for a lightning bolt and “AMP” next to articles in the “Top Stories” section of your search results and enjoy blazing fast webpage loading!
- Instantly watch sports highlight videos in Now cards— whenever you get a sports highlights Now card, just tap the play button and watch the video right there. No need to load a new webpage.
- Keyboard shortcuts for iPad users — If you have an external keyboard for your iPad, you can now use keyboard shortcuts to search faster and navigate the app more easily (hold the “Command” key to see the list of supported shortcuts).
- See the busiest hours for places and local businesses directly in the search results page. No need to tap and expand the local search result anymore.
