Google has continued to update their list of applications such as Google Voice, Gmail, Market and more as things move forward and today they've let us all know about some exciting changes coming to Google Search for Android. I don't know about you readers but I use the Google Search widget on my phone like 10 times a day so things are about to get easier and make life much more simple.
This was just posted earlier today but has since been pulled from Google's Blogspot but I've still got the screenshot for all the details. They are finally bringing a few things I've been patiently waiting for. They have some great new things I'll outline below, one of my biggest features I've always wanted will soon be here -- the option to edit a suggestion result before sending it off to searchville.
- Suggestions grouped by type, with web suggestions at the top.
- Country-specific suggestions and search results for all countries with Google domains.
- Long press to remove history items.
- Faster, smoother performance, with an updated and simplified user interface.
Looking over the photo above you'll see arrows on the search suggestions, tapping on the arrow will allow the user to select that suggestion but edit it before searching. It has a nice new user interface upgrade that looks similar with recent updates like the Android Market to bring things closer to the look and feel of Honeycomb. You can now get search suggestions from other apps on your phone -- check out searchable items in Search settings.
It is not in the market yet and now the blog posting has been removed, hopefully they will push this new update out shortly and we will get the full details at the same time.
