Google Search Android App Update Teased By Google

The last time Google updated its Android search app, it was ten months ago, and was a relatively minor collection of mostly bugfixes. Well, there’s still no new Google Search app out just yet, but it looks like one is set to arrive any day now. Google itself seems to have inadvertently leaked this news, posting this morning about the update on its mobile blog, only to subsequently take the post down.

From the time that the post did remain on the site, we can see that this new version was supposed to add a few features, like location-based results taking into account what country you’re in, and new groupings for the suggestions that pop up as you enter your search terms. Changes to the the app’s UI promise to make it easier to use, and newly-optimized code should leave you with a Google Search experience that is both faster and more consistent.

We’ve got no idea just when Google will actually release this update, but from the sound of things, it was all ready to go. It’s possible some bug was spotted at the last moment, and if that’s the case, we could expect to see the corrected update hit the Android Market within the next day or so.
