Google — the official Search app
By Google, Inc.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The best of Google in one app. Say “OK Google” and find everything from nearby restaurants to the calories in cheesecake. Google also shows you the info that you need before you ask, like updates on your favourite teams and traffic alerts.
Talk instead of type:
• Say “OK Google” then ask a question*
• Google will speak the answer aloud
Ask Google to help you do things:
“What good restaurants are there nearby?”
“Remind me to call mum at 5 p.m.”
Get Google Now cards and notifications:
• Start your morning with weather, news & traffic
• Get updates on sports, films & events
More about Google Now cards: www.google.com/now
* requires iPhone 4s or later
What's New in Version 15.1
We’re 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 favourite 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 web page 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. There's no need to load a new web page.
• 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!
I'm stunned. This is amazing!
I'm almost at a loss for words. You just type in whatever you want to find out about & this Google thing finds you loads of different sources of information - before you can blink. It's like having every reference library & every expert in the world on call - even outside office hours! So many facts & figures & I've just found out it will show pictures and clips of films (with sound) too!
I must write to all of my family & friends to let them know. They're not going to believe it!
Ruined by latest update
Latest update has spoilt this app. After searching, instead of a delete search 'X' on the right hand side of the search box, there is a microphone. I use this app for a series of quick searches, now I have to tap in the search box to reveal the 'X' before I can clear the previous search.
A backward step - I don't need the (unreliable) voice search. Please revert to the previous version or provide an option to customise.
Useless to me until fixed so 1 star - there are alternatives!
Great simple little app that will change your world.
Love the new hot keys but when I command + y for recent pages you can't select the one you want from the keyboard....can we sort that out please
