Google's iOS app receives update that adds 3D Touch support and more
Google has updated its iOS app, adding support for 3D Touch. A heavy fingered tap on the app's icon will present an Apple iPhone 6s or Apple iPhone 6s Plus user with a shortcut menu to Google's voice, text or image searches. You also might notice that some new information pops up on your screen when you Google a local business, including restaurants and bars.

Search for a nearby business or eatery, and your Google search result will include a graph showing how busy this particular location is at certain hours. If you're in a rush, this information can be a timesaver. And Google has also updated its search results for iOS users, adding holiday hours for stores and restaurants.

And with the update, the app will support some of the new features found on the Apple iPad such as Split View and Slide Over. Both will allow you to multitask by viewing the Google app while another app also appears on the screen. This can be very helpful if you're perusing an article, and need to look something up to clarify what you've just read.

The updated version of Google's iOS app is now available in the App Store, and takes Google's iOS app to version 11.0.
