Google brings iOS app suggestions to search results, sort of
Google is not only the most popular search engine in the world, but also the one that’s fastest at innovating with new features for users. A really cool service that Android users had exclusively was to get app suggestions whenever they searched for something. For example, getting suggestions to download Yelp whenever users searched for restaurant information. We say, “had exclusively” because the service just expanded, or at least it sort of did.
Google has just announced that it’ll now give iOS users app suggestions for search queries as well. The only catch is that the service will apparently not work in Safari, even if you set Google as your default search engine. The service will work on the Google app, and it will also work on Chrome for iOS though, so if you actively use these services instead of what Apple provides, you’re golden. Google does disclaim that only a few partners will be featured initially, and that developers will have to follow certain procedures in order to apply.
This should roll out to certain markets very soon. Definitely something nice to have while on the go.
