Editors' Review

+

The main focus of Google Search is the ability to look things up on the Web. In addition to text search, which is available in all browsers, the app lets you perform voice searches. However, the best and most distinguishing feature in the app is without a question Google Now -- an intelligent cards-based system for giving you relevant information before you ask for it.

Pros

Google Now integration: When you enable Google Now, you'll notice that occasionally different cards appear on the bottom half of the app. This is Google Now -- a service that monitors your location, appointments, emails, reminders, Web searches, and more in order to provide predictive assistance with the task you're about to perform.

Voice search: By pressing the microphone icon to the right of the main search field, you'll be able to dictate the things you're looking for instead of typing.

Reminder support: Google Search also has a Reminders feature, which adds custom reminder cards to Google Now and notifies you at the specified time.

Cons

Zero privacy: By using Google services in general and Google Now in particular, you agree to let Google scan all your communications and even your Web searches, which is basically trading your privacy for the convenience that Google Now provides.

Google account required: You cannot complete the setup process without signing into your Google account.

Bottom Line

Contrary to what it says on the tin, Google's services like Search and Google Now do not come free of charge. While you're not paying monetarily, you're agreeing to have your information sold to interested third parties in exchange for the services that are provided to you. If you're comfortable with such an arrangement, you'll find the predictive notifications about appointments, travel times, and ticket information very handy and useful.

What's new in version 15.1
Were excited to introduce some new features that will speed up your search and browsing experience in the Google 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. Other updates: 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.We are always working to make the app faster and more stable. If you are enjoying the app, please consider leaving a review or rating!
