Remember that little diagonal arrow that used to appear next to suggestions in the Google Search box as you typed? The arrows could be used to insert suggestions into the search bar, while you kept typing away. For a while now, though, the arrows have been missing from Google Search. Those that want that feature back are in luck, however – astute Redditor Foxsbiscuits notes that a simple long-press will fling search suggestions into the search bar, providing essentially the same functionality with a slightly more discreet UI.

Before and After

Keeping this handy tip in mind, your searches can be as quick and efficient as ever.

Note: The arrows are indeed still present in Chrome - this tip is primarily aimed at the users of the Google Search/Now app.
