Google Live Search on Android!


Right on the heels of the new Goggles photo search, Google has announced its latest search feature, Live Search, on their official blog:

First, we’re introducing new features that bring your search results to life with a dynamic stream of real-time content from across the web. Now, immediately after conducting a search, you can see live updates from people on popular sites like Twitter and FriendFeed, as well as headlines from news and blog posts published just seconds before. When they are relevant, we’ll rank these latest results to show the freshest information right on the search results page.

With the growing popularity of real time updates from services such as Facebook, Twitter, and the plethora of blogs, information is now available quicker than ever.

Google Live Search now allows us to view these real time updates matching our Google searches.  To make things even better, it is immediately available on your favorite Android phone via Google’s mobile page.  To access these new results, simply search an interest, then select “Options” and “Updates.”  You will now be treated to the latest updates from Twitter, Facebook, blogs, and news sites, as shown in the screenshot.  On top of that, the results automatically refresh, showing new updates within seconds of being posted.

I am excited to see Google coming out with so many new features that integrate into Android and greatly enhance the user experience.  As services like Twitter and Facebook continue to grow, it will certainly be nice to have a quick and easy way to find relevant posts.
