This week in search

This is part of a usual series of posts on search experience updates that runs on Fridays. Look for the label "This week in search" and donate to to the series. - Ed.
Time is a valuable commodity for most of us. To save you more precious seconds as you search, we’ve introduced Google Instant in Places View and redesigned the Google Search app for iPhone for faster, easier searching—whether you’re on your way out or by now on the go.

Instant for Places View

As part of our continuing effort to give you the Instant experience everywhere on Google, this week we’ve enabled Instant in Places View so you can find where you want to go even more rapidly. To get to Places View, click “Places” in the left-hand panel; once you’re there, any search you perform will have place and map results that inform as you type. We’ll continue to expand immediate to all views, languages and domains over the next few months.

Google Search app for iPhone

The redesigned Google Search app for iPhone, previously known as Google Mobile App, improves the Google search experience on iOS mobile devices, giving you instinctive gesture controls. First, when browsing through search results or looking at a webpage, you can steal down to see the search bar to type in a new query or change your settings.

There’s also a new toolbar that makes it easier for you to filter your results—for example, if you only desire to see images or shopping results. You can open this toolbar by swiping from left to right.

Plus, now it’s easier to pick up penetrating where you left off. If you leave the app and come back later, you’ll be able to get back to precisely where you were by tapping on the lower part of the page. To use the Google Search app, download or inform it in the iTunes App Store.

Search in Cherokee

With conversion help from the Cherokee Nation staff and community members, we’ve additional Cherokee as an interface language on Google. You can set Cherokee as your defaulting from the Language Tools page (available to the right of the search box). We’ve also included an on-screen Cherokee keyboard—which you can contact by clicking the icon at the right side of the search box—for people who don’t have a physical Cherokee keyboard.
