In either a full blown app update or simple server-side change, the Google app is reported to become a bit more helpful and quicker in delivering the answers you are looking for.
Before the update, when you attempt a search such as “How old is Barack Obama?,” you need to hit Enter to complete the search in order to view the answer. Thanks to the update, your answer will appear directly below in the Search Suggestions, with no need to continue to the results page.
As another example, you could ask, “What year did California become a state?” Without having to see the results page, Google will tell you the answer right below in the Search Suggestions.
It’s not a huge change, but definitely something to help speed up the search process.
