Google is finally adding a feature to Android that iOS has had for over seven months now: a button to delete the search history of the last 15 minutes. The feature was announced at Google I/O 2021 and made it to the Google app for iOS in July last year. It was missing in the Google app for Android, but now the feature is now finally rolling out.

The feature was spotted by XDA Developer's ex-Chief Editor, Mishaal Rahman, and it was later confirmed to The Verge by a Google's spokesperson. "We’re currently rolling this feature out on the Google app for Android and expect it to be available to everyone using the app in the next few weeks," Google told the publication.


Google says that it had intentions to bring the feature to Android at the end of last year, however, the company missed that deadline. Nonetheless, the feature is finally rolling out and you should be able to see it in the Google app on your Android phone in the coming days. Follow along and learn how you can quickly delete the last 15-minute search history on Android.
