Hyderabad: Google India improves the search experience for its Indian users, on Thursday, it introduced the latest update to its ‘Search’ app.
In a statement, Google said, the update, which is available in English, would provide users easy access to information like cricket scores and statistics, weather, nearby restaurants, ATMs, grocery stores and more.
The shortcuts which can be tapped on the Google app for Android, will now appear immediately beneath the search bar. Other than those four most used shortcuts on the home screen, users can also find dozens of other useful shortcuts by tapping the little arrow to the right of the shortcuts like nearby gas stations, pharmacies, convenience stores, vacation destinations and booking flight tickets, reports Gizmodo.
The update also provides quick access to games like ‘Tic-tac-toe’, ‘Roll a dice’, ‘Solitaire’ and ‘Fidget spinner’. Google last month rolled out the latest update in its Search engine which will help the Indian users discover, promote and attend their favourite events in town.
“Starting today [July 21] in India, doing a search for many types of events on the Google mobile search app and mobile web will bring up a concise summary of events and activities from popular sites from across the web like BookMyShow.com, AllEvents.in, EventsHigh.com, and 10times.com,” the search engine said in a statement.
So if you’re a food lover, typing a quick search like, “food festivals in Delhi,” will get you a listing of the best options in an easy-to-review format, along with the date, timing, location of the events.
Google has also released developer guidelines to help developers format their event listings so users can more easily find them when looking for activities and events on Google.
