The internet is a place where information is available in abundance, but sometimes searching for your queries on the internet can be a pain, especially when your mobile network isn’t reliable, translating into a poor internet connection.
To make your search experience even more seamless, the search engine giant, Google, has brought forward an update to their search app for smartphones which will accommodate your spotty internet and return results as soon as the connection is good enough.
The new update allows Google to continue the search as soon as a network connection is available again.
“Mobile networks can sometimes be inconsistent or spotty, which means that even if you have a connection when you start your search, it might fail before you get your results back. The Google app will work behind-the-scenes to detect when a connection is available again and deliver your search results once completed,” Shekhar Sharad, Product Manager at Google writes.
At times it happens that by the time you’ve entered your query and the search engine is returning results, there is a glitch in the network connection.
With the latest update, your search query is saved as soon as you request it and Google returns results as soon as an active internet connection is detected.
“So the next time you lose service, feel free to queue up your searches, put your phone away and carry on with your day,” he adds.
The company maintains that this feature won’t contribute to your device’s battery drain or delve into your mobile data usage, rather its ‘streamlined search results pages’ use minimal data and power to run.
To get this feature on your smartphone, ensure that it’s running on the latest version of the Google app on Android.
