Google Brings Location Search History to Mobile Browsers

We’ve talked before about some of the tools Google has made available in order to help bridge the gap between the time you spend working on your computer and time spent on your smartphone. There’s stuff like Chrome to Phone, for example, which lets you access information your pulled-up while browsing from your PC while later on a mobile device. Today the company has a tweak along those lines to introduce to its mobile site, letting you easily access information on places you’ve researched from your smartphone.

If you’ve got Google’s Web History enabled, letting it keep track of your queries, it’s now going to pay special attention to the details on any physical places you end up searching for. Later on, when you pull up Google on your phone’s browser, you’ll be able to review those locations through a new “Recent” icon. Unlike Chrome to Phone, there’s no special software to install on either side of this equation; you just need to be logged-in to Google on your phone with the same credentials you use on your PC.

For now, the new feature works on Google’s Android browser and with Mobile Safari on iOS.
