Starting Today, Google Automatically Brings Your Recent Desktop Searches to Mobile in “Recent” Tab

How many times have you found yourself searching for something on your desktop computer just before leaving, then pulling out your phone and having to search for it again from the road? Enough times that you would love it if Google decided to sync those same searches across platforms? You are in luck starting today. A new “Recent” tab has been added to the Google mobile page, pulling from your most recent desktop searches and offering them up for you on your phone.

All you have to do is sign in on Google in both desktop browsers and on your phone and the searches should start syncing automatically. As you can see from my picture above, it gave me the following suggestion after searching for “best burrito portland” on my desktop.

    I love King Burrito.  Used to live on N. Vincent Ave right next to it.

    “Snooki Pregnant?” That was my last search. I hope that is not a commentary on my life.

  • But I don’t WANT this feature!

    How many times have you found yourself searching for something late at night on your PC that would be embarrassed to have someone find on your phone the next morning?

      You wouldn’t have that problem if you used private browsing in chrome.

      SoCal Mexican food is good, but you’ve got to come to NM if you want muy bueno!

      • lacokanostra

        Depends what part of New Mexico, some Mexican food is way to anglozied to be considered Mexican

    Awesome.  In the on-going saga with the few friends I have left on @pples, I like to point out connectivity.  Taking a picture and having it instantly on my tablet or home computer, using My Maps for finding places, linked bookmarks in Chrome and Push to Chrome etc… This just adds to it.  Thanks Google, take a bra out of petty-cash.

    • guestttttt

      How do you take a picture and have it instantly on your tablet and home computer? G +?

      Also, does this work on tablets? When I go to Google on my TP (CM9) it shows me the tablet version, which doesn’t have that stuff on the bottom (recent, restaurants, bars etc.)

    Clearly Google is invading our privacy and we should all be very afraid. BOOGA BOOGA BOOGA.

      no worries… the EU will be launching an investigation into this matter shortly.
