Google Instant has been bringing lighting fast search results to the desktop for a couple of months. Dynamic results are shown as you type your search query. Basically, Google guesses what you’re typing as you type it.
This amazing technology has been duplicated with other famous search services like App Store Instant. We’ve all been waiting in eager expectation for Google to bring instant searching to iOS, and Google Instant has now been made available on all iOS 4.0+ devices…
Reports have been that some areas in the U.S. do not have Google Instant yet. The service should start rolling out internationally in the coming weeks. I personally got the option for Instant search almost right away.
It appears that the Instant option is only available on the mobile Google website. The official Google Mobile app will most likely be updated with Instant support soon.
I also noticed that Google felt the need to clarity that Instant was in “beta.” O Google, when will you realize that your whole company is basically in beta.
Read the Google Blog post about Instant on mobile,
“With Google Instant on mobile, we’re pushing the limits of mobile browsers and wireless networks. You will probably notice a big improvement in speed when you search thanks to a new AJAX and HTML5 implementation for mobile that dynamically updates the page with new results and eliminates the need to load a new page for each query… Google Instant for mobile works best on 3G and WiFi networks, but since the quality of any wireless connection can fluctuate, we’ve made it easy to enable or disable Google Instant without ever leaving the page. Just tap the “Turn on” or “Turn off” link.”
Let us know if you have Google Instant enabled on your iOS device. How does it work for you?
