Google Search for Android Gains Offline Mode
Google has made it possible for Google Search to work even when the device goes offline. The latest build of Search for Android can store Google searches if a phone loses its network connection. Users can queue up as many searches as they want while the phone is offline. Google will then perform the searches as soon as the phone reconnects, saving the results within the app for easy retrieval. Google says the tool relies on streamlined behaviors to conserve power and data, so it shouldn't impact peoples' smartphones in a negative way. Google Search for Android is free to download from the Google Play Store.
