We always appreciate it when new features or new apps take one step away from our usual tasks because we have too many things to do and so little time. The convenience it gives us, no matter how small, is still something. So it looks like Google wants to help us out when it comes to installing apps because it is reportedly testing out a feature that would let you install an app directly from the search results, if you use the Google app on your Android smartphone or tablet.
Some users say that they’ve had this feature for some months but it’s only now that the testing has become wider. Basically what happens is that when you search for an app using the Google search bar on your Android device (and not through the Chrome browser), when you get your search results and you click on the specific app, you see an Install button already. It will pop up like the permission pop ups when you’re actually at the GPS. Here you’ll still see the permission dialogue box as well.
Previously, if you clicked on an app, you’ll be redirected to the Google Play Store and that’s where you can install the app. But now, they plan to remove that extra step and just get you to install from the Google app itself. This is good if you already know the app that you want to install. But if you want to know more about it, of course you’d still need to see its actual page.
If you don’t see it happening yet, then this probably means you’re not part of the testing group. But if all goes well, this will probably be a permanent feature on the Google app for Android devices.
