Google Introduces Shortcuts For Faster Access To Information

Google has now brought tappable shortcuts to its Android and iOS app as well as to its mobile search. This will allow its users one-touch access to all the information about particular topics.

Now, upon landing on the home screen, searchers will be met with a carousel of swipe-able shortcuts to information about things like sports, food & beverage, entertainment, weather, and more.

In comparison to iOS users, Android users will be having access to additional shortcuts, including:

Nearby attractions
Internet speed test
Roll a die
Animal sounds
Currency converter
Along with the given additions, the company wants its users to bypass the traditional search box in order to find what they’re looking for in a faster manner. Now, just with a single tap on the entertainment shortcut, you’ll be able to see what all is playing the coming weekend at a theater near you.

Confused about nearby dining options? Then, the “eat and drink shortcut” will be your guide. For sports, if you’re a football fan, you really don’t have to type anything to know the latest scores.

Google suggests: Keep your application updated in order find the recently used shortcuts and all these will be on continuous updations for current events.
