Google Search app makes its way to Windows Marketplace for Mobile

Posted by Chris Smith

Google-windows-phone-home Today Google announced and made available their own search app for all WP7 phones. If you were one of the lucky launch day buyers you can now go to the Marketplace and download Google Search.

The app doesn't really have to many bell-and-whistles, but what it lacks in features makes up in functionality. Google is known for allowing their search to be fast, accurate, and intuitive and they accomplish that on WP7. After downloading the app, users can pin the app to Start, allowing them access right from the Start screen.

The app allows for search of the web, images, local, news, etc. and give you suggestions as you type. This isn't Google Instant, merely just suggestions in a drop down while you type in the search box. Also, the app uses location services to give you search results based on where you are located at the time. Like I said before, none of this is groundbreaking, but if you want Google Search on your WP7 instead of the built in Bing, now is your chance to get it.

The app is free in the Marketplace now.
