If you use any of Google’s services in your life, you know that the search giant constantly updates them to improve the experience, whether it is their apps or their Android OS. The Google search app is an integral part of any Android phone and a new update for this app aims to enhance its productivity up a few notches.

The latest version of the Google app in India now shows search shortcuts on the app's homepage. If you didn’t understand that, then consider the following scenario —you generally use the Google app to check the weather or cricket scores. Every time you initiate the Google app, you either have to type your query or speak it out, which is slightly inconvenient in today’s times of ultra-fast shortcut based computing. Google, therefore, has provided shortcuts to frequently searched terms like cricket scores, directions, restaurants addresses, weather details and more. These shortcuts are placed under the Search bar and will be accessible anytime.

 

These search shortcuts will make using the Google app a lot more convenient. The availability of general search queries available at a single tap makes for a satisfying Android experience. If you aren’t seeing the search shortcuts in your Google app, then all you need to do is update your Google app to the latest version from the Google PlayStore.
