Google Offline Search


Google Offline Search

Google is about to roll out an update for its Android app that is a potential game changer.

Android will now provide an offline feature for its Google search results, which means the Android device will now store Google searches offline and deliver them to you when you regain signal.

Searches made from an Android while the device is offline will now be saved then automatically deliver to them as soon as it re-establishes an internet connection.

This type of search may be useful for a lot of people when they find themselves in blackspots or with an unreliable connection, as many are likely to forget what they wanted to search for.

Google’s product manager, Shekhar Sharad said -

“the next time you lose service, feel free to queue up your searches, put your phone away and carry on with your day. The Google app will work behind-the-scenes to detect when a connection is available again and deliver your search results once completed”.

He also stated that the new feature “won’t drain your battery” and won’t have a significant impact on your data usage.

This new search feature will store your pending searches in the Google app under the Manage Search section.

But as of yet, there is no mention to when this new feature will be coming to Google’s iOS app.
