Google did BlackBerry fans a solid yesterday by making some improvements to their homepage. The latest enhancements to Google Search allows for “faster and easier searching” especially on touch-enabled devices like the Torch. Google Search can also be accessed in 20 languages across 70 countries. Here’s what was updated:
- Enter searches faster: Save time by using autocomplete and search history queries that appear beneath the search box as you type.
- Web search: Find what you’re searching for fast. Comprehensive results pages let you see relevant websites, images, videos, news, real-time results and more. Simply click on the arrow button ‘>>’ to the left of the top search box for more refinement options.
- Image search: Swipe through image results quickly and easily on touch enabled devices. Start by selecting ‘Images’ at the top of www.google.com, then enter a search. From there, click on any image to view a larger size.
- Local search: Find restaurants, shops and other popular business categories with a single tap. Start by selecting ‘Places’ at the top of www.google.com, then click on an icon from the Places homepage.
Keep in mind, to see the new updates/enhancements your BlackBerry has to have OS 6.0 and a WebKit browser. Check it out at google.com and let me know what you think in the comments!
