Google Released New Updates to its iOS App

By August 3, 2016 June 26th, 2019 No Comments

Google’s iOS app gets many new updates, with some major improvements to voice search. Now the voice search will be able to hear you better even when you are in an environment with lots of noise. Another new addition is that the app will now save your recent online activity. The ‘recents’ icon on the top right side will show you all pages visited within the last 7 days.

Hotel & Gas Station Updates

Google has also updated local search results for gas stations and hotels. When someone makes a search for hotel, they will get info related to hotels such as:

  • Pool
  • Laundry service
  • Gym
  • Wi-Fi

A search for gas station can return gas prices.

Forward Button

Another important addition to Google app for iOS v17.0 is in the form of the forward button. The search engine had so far no button for its iOS users to navigate forward. It’s hard to find any good reason why Google thought it well so far not to have a forward button!

7 Day Search History

As already mentioned, Google iOS app users can now check their search and recent pages history up to 7 days. Earlier, you could check it only up to 24 hours in the past.

According to the search engine, it increased the page/search history from 1 day to 7 days after getting feedback.

Better Voice Search

Google has always given a lot of importance to voice search. With this new update in its iOS app, the search engine has further improved this feature’s capabilities. You can carry out voice searches more efficiently even when you are in an environment surrounded by lots of noise.

Google’s iOS Focus

Google’s Android apps have been known for their better features for some time. But more recently the search engine has upped its efforts to improve its iOS apps. The recent updates seem to be a part of this effort.

Many users have reported that it has become now increasingly easier to use Google’s iOS apps than their Android counterparts. In other words, more fascinating innovations are now being created by the search engine’s iOS app teams.

The latest Google iOS app update is rolled out on iPhones, iPods, and iPads. Do you want to promote your business more effectively through SEO? It is recommended to visit for more information.
