Google Search for Android Receives An Update, Incorporates New UI

Right on the heels of their recent Google Search update for tablets, it looks like Google is about to release a search update for Android phones as well. According to Google, new features will include:

• 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

I have found the tablet version of the update to be a nice improvement over the original. Let’s hope this carries over to the phone based version as well.

Once the update goes live, it should be available to all phones running Android 2.2 or higher.
