Google Updates Search App for Android

Google has released* a new version of the search application today, tossing in a number of minor improvements. Users will notice right away that the interface has received a bit of a makeover which takes its cues from the new Android Market.  Suggestions are now grouped by type with web suggestions listed at the top of the screen.  Additional details include country-specific suggestions and  results for all countries with Google domains and the ability to remove history items with a long press.

Read more about the update at the Google Mobile blog.  If you are running Android 2.2 or higher, you should be on the lookout for the new Search app! We just checked a few minutes ago and the Market is still showing the previous release dated October 2010.

*Google looks to have pulled the announcement article down by the time we finished typing this post.

    Maybe Google realised it may infringe a patent, and delayed it :P Anyway, I hope Google wins the patent war.
