Google Search app for Android is updated and easier-to-use more than ever
As if the Google Search app isn’t already more than useful to millions of people around the world, but it’s being updated to offer an even easier-to-use experience – well that’s not too shabby, right?

Some might fathom how else they can innovate a web search app, but Google manages to tastefully update it enough to warrant some recognition. For starters, the new version is compatible to run on Android 2.2 and up devices, and packs along quite a few new features.

At its core, it features new search suggestions that are grouped according to the search type, and of course, web suggestions are placed prominently at the very top of the listing. Moreover, we find that search suggestions are categorized according to countries, there is a faster deletion for search history by executing a long press, and an updated interface that’s more attuned in actually helping you get results.

Naturally, Android users can update the app right now through the Android Market. Meanwhile, for those owners using a Bing-a-fied device can also download a fresh copy.

How much easier can it get, does it now read my mind and I do not even need to speak? :)

Seems the one on my Nexus S 2.3.4 is already newer?
