Google is rolling out a new version of its Google Search app for Android devices. The new app offers improved search suggestions, faster performance, and the ability to remove items from your search history by long-pressing on them.
The Google Search app is available for free from the Android Market. It supports Android 2.2 and up.
When you start typing in the search box in the new app, it will start to offer suggestions sorted by type. At the top of the list you’ll see web search suggestions, followed by contacts, bookmarks, and other items stored on your phone.
The update also offers country-specific search suggestions.
Google posted details about the new app in a blog post today, but the page has been removed, which would suggest that the app isn’t ready for distribution just yet… but it should be available soon.
