Google Instant for Android

If you have an Android device, this new Google service may be of your interest. Google Instant is a service that has been available on desktop computers for a long time and is now available on your device. This tool makes search faster by displaying not just predictions but actual search results as you type, which will save you precious time when surfing the web. The beta version is available now, so to try it out, go to google.com in your device browser and tap the Google Instant “Turn on” link behind the search box. This service has been announced only for USA on the beta stage but I have personally tested outside of USA and it´s working just great.
You can see a video of how it works on the link below.

Quote Google official blog
Like the desktop version of Google Instant, when you type on your mobile device you’ll see predictions of what you might be searching for. Results for the first prediction appear automatically, and tapping on the other predictions will display those results. Pressing the enter key or the search button skips the predictions and will display results for exactly what you’ve typed

For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
