If you haven't notice, the Google Search app for Android received an update a little bit ago. This update is for users running Android 2.2 or 2.3 and brings some UI and performance enhancements. Once updated, this is what you'll see:

  • New color scheme and simplified UI
  • Faster, more responsive searches
  • Enhanced suggestions and query editing
  • Better localized suggestions and search results for more countries
  • Long press to remove history items

You can also tap that little arrow to the right of a search suggestion to add it to your search term before searching, making the whole process a little faster. In addition, the whole "search results for more countries" features means that every country with a Google domain will get country-specific suggestions. Go get it, folks!

    its good, now i think its much more sensible to search by that little hardware button rather than opera's google search.... Thanks googlers, and this stable entry in the bookmarks bar for letting me know.

    They don't mention that search filters have now been removed meaning if you want to search for a text you have to search everything on your phone. You can go into the settings and chose what can be searched but in the previous version it was as simply as selecting the Google icon from the widget and choosing Messages, People, Apps, etc... Also landscape view is messed up and too narrow. And lastly YouTube support seems broken since this last update from search and otherwise. Two steps back Google!
