This afternoon, Google introduced two new features for Google Search, features that will bring your inquiries and apps together for a more fluid experience. For example, if you are searching for a holiday movie that you can’t remember the name of, you can perform a Google Search, and if you have the IMDb app installed in this case, you will be given the option to open the app right from the search results. Kind of neat, right?
Not only will your apps and search results become more intertwined, but Google has also added in the ability to search for new apps you have yet to install, just by searching for them on Google. If you want a few “downhill ski apps,” simply search for it. The results will fill up with links to Google Play for you to download the apps. The choices are limited as of right now, but Google states they are building this feature out to a lot more apps.
Google states that these new features are rolling out through the official Google Search app on Android, as well as through Chrome and various Android browsers. If you are an app developer and want to make sure your apps show up in Google Search results, check out the via link below.
