Google Makes Searching and Sharing Via iMessage Simpler
Google today detailed several new features headed to the Google Search app on iOS devices. First and foremost, Google Search gains a new extension for iMessage that lets you perform Google searches from within iMessage and then easily share the results. New icons for "food" or "nearby" or others simplify the process of finding things to do and share. The tool applies to search results as well as GIFs and is available from the iMessage apps drawer. Second, Google has made it possible to discover related content when searching from any browser on iOS, including Safari. Google added a "Search Google" option to the Safari share menu to make this work with just a few taps. This means if users can find similar things and then share them with no need for more typing. Last, Google Search on the iPad (iOS 11) now supports drag-and-drop so iPad owners can move text, images, and links to/from the Google app. The new Google Search for iOS app is available to download from the iTunes App Store.
