Google Real Time Search on Android

Posted on Dec 10, 2009 in Android News, Tutorials | comment

One of Google’s new features is Google Real Time search and it is now available on Android!
In order to access this feature, simply enter a Google search as you normally would either in the browser on the Google widget itself.
Next, in the top right corner, click Updates.  Now you will receive real-time search results on your item including those from Twitter and other sources.
Amazing enough, the real-time list of results updates itself every few seconds!  I tested this out by searching for one of the trending topics on Twitter.  So many results and they would completely refresh in what seemed like continuous fashion.
Apparently this is being rolled out still so if you don’t see it yet, be patient.  Also, this is available on your standard browser (tested with Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox).
This feature has huge implications as now you can instantly be updated on things that are going on right now, right around you (and you can do this on the go).  It’s extremely easy to find these answers, as you would expect from a new release like this from Google.
Here is a video showcasing the new feature set to some dramatic music.  Enjoy!

What a boost to the Android Operating system, Google, Motorola, Verizon, etc. the Motorola Droid has been.  The marketing campaign with all the Droid commercials has really paid off, and for good reason.  The Motorola Droid has been named Time Magazine’s #1 gadget for the year of 2009.  Note: Apple’s Iphone 3GS was #4.

It’s about time the great Android platform has finally got a really awesome phone that is creating the buzz it deserves.

Here is the latest official video from Google on Android 2.0.  Unfortunately, 2.0 is only being run currently on the Motorola Droid on Verizon’s network.  Hopefully we’ll hear more information about when (or if) we can expect 2.0 to come to older devices like the T-mobile G1 and MyTouch 3G.

What do you think so far?
